Now somewhere in the black moutain 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 in to 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 Lill
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 bust 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 in no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival.
