Am7 Am7                                    D7 D7
Rocky Raccoon checked into his room

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
Only to find Gideon's bible

Am7 Am7 D7 D7
Rocky had come equipped with a gun

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
To shoot off the legs of his rival

Am7 Am7 D7 D7
His rival it seems had broken his dreams

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
By stealing the girl of his fancy.

Am7 Am7 D7 D7
Her name was Magill and she called herself Lil

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
But everyone knew her as Nancy.


Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
Now she and her man who called himself Dan

G7 G7
Were in the next room at the hoedown

G7 G7
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin

C C
He said Danny boy this is a showdown

Cmaj7 Cmaj7
But Daniel was hot-he drew first and shot

Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
And Rocky collapsed in the corner.


(Instrumental)

Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
The doctor came in stinking of gin

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And proceeded to lie on the table

Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
He said Rocky you met your match

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And Rocky said, Doc it's only a scratch

Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
And I'll be better I'll be better doc as soon as I am able.


Amaj7 Amaj7 C C
Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room

G7 G7 C C Cmaj Cmaj
Only to find Gideon's bible

Amaj7 Amaj7 D7 D7
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt

G7 G7 C C Cmaj7 Cmaj7
To help with good Rocky's revival.

About this song

"Rocky Raccoon" is a 1968 folk rock song by The Beatles from the double-disc album The Beatles (also known as The White Album). The song was primarily written by Paul McCartney, who was inspired while playing guitar with John Lennon and Donovan in India (where the Beatles had gone on a retreat). The song, titled from the character's name, was originally "Rocky Sassoon", but McCartney changed it to Rocky Raccoon because he thought "it sounded more like a cowboy.The Old West-style honky-tonk piano was played by producer George Martin.
