             Lyrics


Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota 
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon 
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 
Hit young Rocky in the eye Rocky didn't like that 
He said I'm gonna get that boy 
So one day he walked into town 
Booked himself a room in the local saloon. 


Rocky Raccoon checked into his room 
Only to find Gideon's bible 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
To shoot off the legs of his rival 
His rival it seems had broken his dreams 
By stealing the girl of his fancy. 
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil 
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 
Now she and her man who called himself Dan 
Were in the next room at the hoe down 
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin 
He said Danny boy this is a showdown 
But Daniel was hot-he drew first and shot 
And Rocky collapsed in the corner. 

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
And proceeded to lie on the table 
He said Rocky you met your match 
And Rocky said, Doc it's only a scratch 
And I'll be better I'll be better doc as 
soon as I am able. 

Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room 
Only to find Gideon's bible 
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt 
To help with good Rocky's revival.
