Lyrics

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy name o' Rocky Raccoon-a
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 Magill
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 hoedown
And Rocky burst in
And grinning a grin
Said, "Danny, boy, this is a showdown!"

But Daniel was hot
He drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner
Aah

Da-d'n da da da da da
Daa-d'l da da da da da
Daa-d'l da da da da da
Da-da da da-da ndoo ndoo-doo-doo
Dooodle-doo-doo-doo ndoo-doo-dooo
Dooodle-doo-doo-doo ndoo-doo-dooo
Doo doodle-doo doo-doodle-doo
Doo-doodle-doo doo-doodle-doo
La-ta ndoo dloo-doo-doo

The doctor walked in
Stinking of gin
Proceeded to lie down on the table
And it did him in in the end, poor Doc
Doctor said, "Rocky, you met your match son"
Rocky said it's only a scratch son
I'll be better soon
You better be better soon son said the Doc
Gotta get hip, gotta get up, get back to your gun
Gotta go and show that Danny Boy

However Rocky Raccoon
Got l back in his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible (Daa da-da-da)-Gideon checked out (Poor)
And he left it no doubt (Rocky)
To help with good Rocky's revival (Ohhh)

Aah
Oh, yeah, yeah'n
Doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo
Dooo doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo
Dooo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo doo-doo
Ndoo doo-doo-doo
Dooo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo doo

That's the story of Rocky Racoon

Now Rocky Racoon got up from his room and he walked out
Through the swing doors of the local saloon
Straight into the arms of someone new
Someone he knew from a longtime ago
Maybe from a school day
A young friend of Rocky
Who he recognised, he said Honey, will you be my new honeybunch
She said Rocky boy come on, I'll show you why I love you
Young Rocky Racoon I love the way you wear your hat
I love the way you hit your pants
Rocky Racoon I dig you
He said Mrs, I dig you too
Come with me
