[Intro]
Am  G

[Chorus]
    F                  
The last Comanche moon 
            C
was shinin' on me,
                           G
Bright as day my true love walked 
the trail from Hell's Midnight,
  Am                G
I rode the Milky Way,
F
I raced the Wolf the night,
    C
The Broken Arrow fell,
            G
I staked my life and lost 
my fortune,
       Am
For to save the Mission Belle.

[Interlude]
N.C.  Am
Hey-y oh.

[Verse 1]
Am                       F
I was a cowboy once down on 
the Rio Grande,
G                         Am
I rode the ranges for the Broken 
Arrow brand,
                            F
I was on guard that fateful night 
in early June,
G                       Am   
I saw the risin' of the last 
              G/B
Comanche moon,
C                        G
I saw the warriors ride around 
the river bend,
  Dm                             
I give a shout to rouse the boys 
      Am                   G/B
their home ranch to defend,
C                             
They kept us pinned down with 
  G
a hundred arrows flung,
     Dm                       
They come for all our horses, 
         Am
and they left us with just one, 
I'd locked him with a trace chain to 
  F
a live oak tree that day,
   G                         
My racin' blue roan stallion 
  Am
I called the Milky Way.

[Interlude]
Am
Hey-y oh.

[Verse 2]
Am                            F
His daddy was a mustang and a famous 
fightin' stud,
    G                           Am
His mamma was a thoroughbred of pure 
Kentucky blood,
                            F
He was worth a fortune of a thousand, 
maybe more,
    G                              
His winnin's numbered hundreds and 
    Am                   G/B C
his winters numbered four,
                                G
They raised a cheer back at the Broken 
Arrow Ranch,
       Dm                      
When I rode the Milky Way into 
    Am                   G/B C
the moonlighted Comanch,
                            G
I shot my way out through a hundred 
painted braves,
    Dm                           
And struck the trail that led to 
        Am
town my true love for to save,
My true love was a barmaid and 
    F
she worked at Gambler's Hell,
    G                           
Her name was Julie Anne but she 
    Am
was called the Mission Belle.

[Interlude]
Am
Hey-y oh.

[Verse 3]
Am                               
Julie Anne lived in the ruins of 
    F
the ancient mission church,
     G
That stood a mile from town out,
          Am
Where the braves were sure to search,
She always walked the trail alone 
     F
from Hell's Midnight Saloon,
    G                            
And I was bound to save her from 
    Am                G/B  C
the last Comanche moon,
                          G
Halfway to town and I was crossin' 
Devil Branch,
  Dm                       Am    
I run onto another raidin' party 
           G/B C
of Comanch,
                       G
I recognized a warrior on a blood 
bay mare,
  Dm
I knew his name was Wolf,
               Am
They said he'd lifted lots of hair,
Am
We had hoss raced at the fort,
     F
He admired my blue roan stud,
   G                             
He come on through the moonlight 
       Am                   G
like a lobo trailin' blood,

[Chorus]
    F                              C
The last Comanche moon was shinin' on 
me,
                           G
Bright as day my true love walked 
the trail from Hell's Midnight,
  Am                 G
I rode the Milky Way,
F
I raced the Wolf the night,
    C
The Broken Arrow fell,
            G
I staked my life and lost my fortune,

[Interlude]
Am
Hey-y oh.

[Verse 4]
Am                       F
I shot my pistol dry and dropped 
it on the road,
        G                        
With my saddle bag and cartridge 
        Am
belt to lighten up the load,
Am
But an arrow found old Milky Way,
        F
And his wound began to bleed,
        G
And the Wolf was on his war horse,
  Am                   G/B C
A fleet Comanche steed,
                                G
There in the moonlight rose the ancient
 mission wall,
    Dm                            
The Wolf was right behind me when 
  Am                    G/B C
I heard my true love call,
                          G
I rode the racehorse of a lifetime 
to the ground,
  Dm                          
I swear it died a runnin' and 
    Am
his likes have not been found,
                            F
I landed on my shadow and I lay 
just where I fell,
    G                             
The screams of Julie Ann met with 
    Am
the Wolf's Comanche yell.

[Interlude]
Am
Hey-y oh.

[Verse 5]
Am                          F
I've been called a liar and I've 
been called a fool,
   G                              
'N I've been told Comanches grant 
   Am
no mercy as a rule,
But old Wolf he seen me helpless 
       F
and he seen his chance I know,
       G                      
But he only rode right by me, 
       Am                    G/B C
and he struck me with his bow,
                               G
He could have killed me but he only 
counted coup,
   Dm                               
He turned and touched the Milky Way 
  Am                    G/B C
before the ghost had flew,
                          G
He give a war yell like a wolf 
burned with a brand,
     Dm                           
Then turned and ducked the pistol 
     Am
shot fired by Julie Ann,
                                F
She helped me right up from the hard 
spot where I fell,
    G                             Am
The last Comanche moon, the Milky Way, 
the Mission Belle.

Hey-y oh.

[Verse 6]
Am      N.C.                    
It's been sixty years now since 
  F
I made that fateful ride,
    G                              
And it's been twenty winters since 
  Am
I heard the Wolf had died,
                                  F
It's been seven moons now since I lost 
my Julie Ann,
    G                           
I'm goin' for to join her boys, 
   Am                   G/B C
my time is near at hand,
                                 G
Don't mind my passin' boys, it's time 
the old man died,
    Dm                        
The Wolf he waits to guide me 
       Am                   G/B C
up the trail o'er the divide,
                           G
The moon is risin' like it did 
so long ago,
  Dm                       
I see the warriors waitin' 
       Am
on the ridge now, all aglow,
                          F
Farewell world of trouble here 
comes Julie Ann,
    G                           
She rides the Milky Way to take 
   Am                    G
me to the promised land.

[Chorus]
    F                      
The last Comanche moon was 
        C
shinin' on me,
                           G
Bright as day my true love walked 
the trail from Hell's Midnight,
  Am                 G
I rode the Milky Way,
F
I raced the Wolf the night,
    C
The Broken Arrow fell,
            G
I staked my life and lost my fortune,
       Am
For to save the Mission Belle.

[Outro]
