HERE'S ROCKY RACOON BY THE BEATLES (TAB). I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LYRICS, (MUCH LESS REMEMBER THE WORDS AS I'M PLAYING). IF YOU NEED THE LYRICS, JUST LISTEN TO THE WHITE ALBUM.
THE FOLLOWING PROGRESSION IS REPEATED THROUGHOUT THE SONG:

----3-3-3----3-3-3----3-3-3---2-2-2---1-1-1---1-1-1-- ----1-1-1----1-1-1----1-1-1---1-1-1---0-0-0---0-0-0-- ----2-2-2----2-2-2----2-2-2---2-2-2---0-0-0---0-0-0-- -------------------0--------0------------------------ --0--------0----------------------------------------- -------------------------------------3-------3-------
-----0-0-0---0-0-0---- -----1-1-1---1-1-1---- -----0-0-0---0-0-0---- REPEAT ---------------------- --3--------2---------- ----------------------
I GET BORED AFTER PLAYING ROCKY RACOON LIKE THIS, SO I OFTEN FINGER PICK IT AS SHOWN BELOW:
----3-----3---3--3-----3------ -----1-----1---1--1-----1----- ------2-----2------2-----2---- -----------------0-----0------ etc. ----0-----0----0-------------- ------------------------------
THIS SONG IS SO SIMPLE THAT ANYTHING TO KEEP FROM GETTING BORED OUT OF YOUR MIND IS A DEFINITE PLUS!

intro ----- Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota There lived a young boy name of 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 going to get that boy." So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local saloon. Rocky Racoon 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 McGill, 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. Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Now the doctor came in stinking of gin and proceeded to lie on the table. He said, "Rocky, you met your match." But Rocket 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 it no dobt to help with good Rocky's revival. Oh yeah, yeah Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... regards, bob jude ferrante jude@pipeline.com
