Soldier Of Fortune



I have often told you storiesAbout the wayI lived the life of a drifterWaiting for the dayWhen I'd take your handAnd sing you songsThen maybe you would sayCome lay with me love meAnd I would surely stay
But I feel I'm growing olderAnd the songs that I have sungEcho in the distanceLike the soundOf a windmill goin' 'roundI guess I'll always beA soldier of fortune
Many times I've been a travellerI looked for something newIn days of oldWhen nights were coldI wandered without youBut those days I thougt my eyesHad seen you standing nearThough blindness is confusingIt shows that you're not here
Now I feel I'm growing olderAnd the songs that I have sungEcho in the distanceLike the soundOf a windmill goin' 'roundI guess I'll always beA soldier of fortuneYes, I can hear the soundOf a windmill goin' 'roundI guess I'll always beA soldier of fortune
