The Civil War: All In One

   Rocky Raccoon
by John T. Marck

Rocky Raccoon

Originally titled, "Rocky Sassoon," this was Paul's country-western song. It was his version of a musical western, and the name was changed to "Raccoon," because it sounded more like a cowboy. It's theme was derived from a true life event of Paul's in May 1966. While rather stoned one day, Paul cut his lip and chipped a tooth. The doctor acted as described in the song, stinking of gin, etc. He did a lousy job of stitching Paul's lip, and left him with a lump that stayed on his lip for a while thereafter.

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota,

There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon (na)

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 in the local saloon

Rocky Raccoon checked into his room,

Only to find Gideon's bible

Rocky had come, equipped with the 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 hoe-down

Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin,

He said Danny boy this is a show down

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

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, da, da, da, da
