Soldier Of Fortune

Album: Stormbringer (1974)
  • 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 and 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 going round
    Guess I'll always be a soldier of fortune

    Many times I've been a traveller
    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 going round
    Guess I'll always be a soldier of fortune

    I can hear the sound
    Of a windmill going round
    Guess I'll always be a soldier of fortune

    I guess I'll always be
    A soldier of fortuneWriter/s: Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale
