Soldier of Fortune Lyrics

11. Soldier of Fortune (3:18)
Track rating :  95 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
(originally by Deep Purple)

I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand
And sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
Come lay with me love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

Many times I've been a traveler
I looked for something new
In days of old
When nights were cold
I wandered without you
But those days I thought my eyes
Had seen you standing near
Though blindness is confusing
It shows that you're not here

Now I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune
