Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Sessions

 

The chord progression to this song is:

·        E7, A7

 

E7   A7  (x2)

 

E7                                     A7

I don’t much care for your silly* ways

E7                                                     A7

I’ve been walkin' around this place for days and days

E7                                                     A7

Cuz concrete and cops are everywhere

E7                                         A7

Everybody’s fightin' for their share

A7

(But not me though – Do you know why?)

 

       E7

Cuz Polly and Dolly were sittin' on a fence

A7

Beatin' my head with a monkey wrench

E7                                  A7

Hey babe, that sounds so good - It sounds so good

E7                                                A7

Hey babe, baby, babe, it sounds so good

 

E7   A7  (x8)

 

E7                                  A7

If an old man went stone blind

E7                                                        A7

What do you think that old man would find?

E7                                                       A7

Would he find himself a check in the mail?

E7                                                       A7

Or would he be livin' in his own personal jail?

A7

(I really don’t care - You know why?)

 

       E7

Cuz Polly and Dolly were sittin' on a fence

A7

Beatin' my head with a monkey wrench

E7                                  A7

Hey babe, that sounds so good - It sounds so good

E7                                                A7

Hey babe, baby, babe, it sounds so good

 

E7   A7   (x6)

 

E7                      A7

Little Diane, she threatened my life

E7                                        A7

She’s gonna cut me up with a plastic pocket knife

 

E7

Polly and Dolly were sittin' on a fence

A7

Beatin' my head with a monkey wrench

E7                                  A7

Hey babe, that sounds so good - It sounds so good

E7                                                A7

Hey babe, baby, babe, it sounds so good

 

E7   A7   (x2)

 

E7      

Polly and Dolly were sittin' on a fence

A7

Beatin' my head with a monkey wrench

E7                                  A7

Hey babe, that sounds so good - It sounds so good

E7                                                A7

Hey babe, baby, babe, it sounds so good

 

E7   A7   (x9)

 

E7

Polly and Dolly were sittin' on my fence

A7

Beatin' my head with a monkey wrench

E7                                  A7

Hey babe, that sounds so good

E7                                                A7

Hey babe, baby, babe, it sounds so good

 

E7                 A7

Oooh keep on walkin'

E7                                              A7

Don’t have to stop to do no fancy talkin'

E7                 A7

Oooh keep on walkin'

E7                            A7

Smile everybody down – Smile 'em down

 

E7   A7   (x7)

 

 

*I was told this is supposed to be, “I don’t care much for your CITY ways.” But I swear I hear him sing, “…SILLY ways.” What do you hear?

 

This version of this song was originally called “Polly and Dolly” but later when Raccoon sang the song he changed the names to “Bougie and Eva” (a couple girls he knew from Rainbow Gatherings) so it was decided it could no longer just be called “Polly And Dolly” so I changed the name to “That Sounds So Good (Polly And Dolly)”. If a version where he sang “Bougie and Eva” comes out the song will then be called, “That Sounds So Good (Bougie and Eva).” Hopefully there is a recording of the newer version out there somewhere.
