These are the chords for The Last Comanche Moon by Mike Blakely on Piano, Ukulele, Guitar, and Keyboard
[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, Am For to save the Mission Belle. [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.

[Interlude] Am 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.
