Beatles, The - Rocky Raccoon Lyrics




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 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
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, ah

D'da d'da d'da da da da
D'da d'da d'da da da da
D'da d'da d'da da d'da d'da d'da d'da
Do do do do do do

D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
Do do do do do do

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"

And 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, ah
Oh yeah, yeah

D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do do
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
Do do do do do do

D'do d'do d'do do do do, come on, Rocky boy
D'do d'do d'do do do do, come on, Rocky boy
D'do d'do d'do do do d'do d'do d'do d'do
The story of Rocky there

Beatles, The Rocky Raccoon Comments
  1. Danielle U

    Cheesy song .that's why I prefer John songs

  2. max manzur

    and one day rap was born

  3. Enrique Mendiola

    I'll say it this better than The Stones ever thought about being.

  4. best Beatles song ever but you never hear it.

  5. Ward McClain

    Anyone else here ever think about blowing yer fuckn brains out too this?

  6. Good job inc.

    What genre do you think this should be considered 🧐

  7. Christina Sanchez

    I just finished jamming out to your Beatles play list so good thank you for bringing back memories and excellent songs that we really don't get to hear anymore But I must say I almost cried when I heard John Lennon singing Happiness is a warm gun made me sad and I 'm sure you can relate but thank you again for the great tunes that you choose !!! A Beatles fan forever!!🥰

  8. owo penguin puffin

    What happened to peace and love😖😖

  9. ZMAN 420

    FUCKING GREAT.

  10. 木倉谷哲也

    John’s last harmonica on the Beatles songs.

  11. Darren R

    Sounds so similar yet so different to MR Bonjangles by Sammy Davies Jr!

  12. Cheesy Studios

    I don't understand the hate for this song. It's able to be upbeat and energetic, with the accompanying lyrics being pretty dark. It's a short and simple, but interesting story being told, and it sounds great at the same time. It's one of my personal favorites even though some people say it might be the worst

  13. Floopus Doopus

    go rockey

  14. noppchris

    i know why you’re _really_ here

  15. Bob

    Poor Rocky, he never realized how his love and affection would get him shot! That's the way it is woman! Deal with it!

    Bob

    We will risk our lives, to be your loving sperm donors! Ladies!

    Bob

    Sorry, but I'm only being honest! Now! It's up to you loving woman to prevent this! Make-up your god-damn minds! Thank You!

  16. Blind Mind

    It's 2 pm and I'm playing skyrim,ready to approce a Supreme drougr lord that killed my good companion Rajja,hoping to find her remains or maybe her still alive.My character's name:Rocky Raccoon

  17. insert name

    Doctor: “Rocky, you've met your match.”

    Rocky: *“Tis' but a flesh wound.”*

    BOBERT Da Irish

    Some Beatles songs are straight up month python films

    Weird-Cat-Outside

    𝗔 𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵? 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝗿𝗺'𝘀 𝗼𝗳𝗳!

    Gotham Knight

    BOBERT Da Irish George Harrison actually financed Life of Brian. Their live action movies like A Hard Day’s Night kinda have a Monty Python feel to them

  18. Anthony Carlton

    This makes me wanna play rdr2

  19. hazelife

    This is just simply brilliant, it saddens me that music like this is no longer made

  20. Daniel Taylor

    IS IT WEIRD I ROOT FOR DAN!?

  21. Jack Wodicka

    Don’t ask but I love the way he sings “But Daniel was hot”

  22. henrietta jenlion

    the doctor was sminking

  23. JFJHJPmusicLove

    It's so white :) Haha

  24. Travis Nunnally

    The White album rules, you're album drools!

  25. Christopher Michael Myles

    Fuck yeah

  26. Minerva Tavira

    Siempre que escuchó esta canción me dan muchas ganas de llorar mientras la canto a todo pulmón. La amo ❤

  27. Cindy Dufala

  38. Jackson Langford

    that snare hit after Daniel shot is so fucking perfect. its not loud but its the first stick snare hit in the song so it has weight. that's the kind of genius song writing people love the Beatles for.

  39. Sofia Ballester

    sounds like the storyline for a Quentin Tarantino film

    Blind Mind

    My favorite song from the Beatles. Actually one of my first songs I learned as a child. Edit: My pa thought me this song when maybe I was 7 or 8, now 27 and I still enjoy singing this song with him. One of my favorites. When I have a son or daughter I will teach this song, I have to.
