Soldier Of Fortune

This song is by Deep Purple and appears on the album Stormbringer (1974) and on the live album Last Concert in Japan (1977).

This song has been covered by Blackmore's Night under the title "Soldier Of Fortune".
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
And may be 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
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

Yes, I can hear the sound
Of a windmill going round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune.
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune.
