Phish – Rocky Raccoon lyrics

Now somewhere in the black hill mountains of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
One day his woman ran off with another guy
He hit young Rocky in the eye

Rocky didn't like that
Said, “I'm gonna get that boy”
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room at 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 seemed had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy
Her name was Magill and she called herself Lil
But everyone knew him 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

The doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said, “Rocky, you've 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”

So Rocky Raccoon checked back in his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
[Incomprehensible] Gideon checked out and he left with no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival
