ROCKY RACOON- The Beatles

| Am7 | % | % | % |

    Am7                                            
Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
              D7sus4                  D7
There lived a young boy named Rocky Racoon
G7                                   C
 And one day his woman ran off with another guy
C/B                    [Am7]
Hit young Rocky in the eye

Am7
   Rocky didn't like that
             D7sus4              D7 
He said "I'm gonna get that boy"
        G7
So one day he walked into town
                             C            C/B
Booked himself a room in the local saloon

Am7                   D7sus4  D7
Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
G7                   C      C/B
Only to find Gideon's bible
Am7             D7sus4         D7
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
   G7                        C      C/B
To shoot off the legs of his rival

Am7                    D7sus4     D7  
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
   G7                       C      C/B
By stealing the girl of his fancy
    Am7                    D7sus4         D7
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
    G7                   C      C/B
But everyone knew her as Nancy

    Am7                 D7sus4         D7
Now she and her man who called himself Dan
     G7                      C       C/B
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Am7                D7sus4     D7
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
         G7                    C      C/B
He said "Danny boy this is a showdown"

    Am7                D7sus4         D7
But Daniel was hot- he drew first and shot
    G7                     C       C/B
And Rocky collapsed in the corner

        Am7            D7sus4      D7
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
       G7                   C      C/B
And proceeded to lie on the table
         Am7                 
He said "Rocky you met your match"
          D7sus4                 D7
And Rocky said, "Doc it's only a scratch
            G7                                      C      C/B
And I'll be better, I'll be better doc as soon as I am able"

    Am7                   D7sus4      D7
Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room 
G7                    C      C/B
Only to find Gideon's bible
Am7                       D7sus4     D7
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
   G7                             C   C/B
To help with good Rocky's revival

Raccoon is spelled with 2 Cs so if you want to find better tabs for this song search there.

I use this progression
Am7 D7sus4 D7 G7 C C/B

So that should give a base player an idea what to play.

2 stars, this is not it.

hort stu is right, this is the right progression:
Am7 D7sus4 D7 G7 C C/B

And Am7 is:

|0-0-2-2-1-3|

Not: |0-0-2-0-1-3|

I want to post or [tab]
