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.
