Tom: Gm

Intro: Gm / F / Eb

        Gm
I have often told you stories

I have often told you stories
F
about the way
   Gm
I lived the life of a drifter
Dm
  waiting for the day
          Gm
When I'd take your hand and sing you songs
      F
Then maybe you would say
Gm
Come lay with me and love me
Dm                      bass D - C - Bb
  And I would surely stay


Bb       C                Gm   bass G - F - Eb
  But I feel I'm growing older
            F                Bb
  And the songs that I have sung
   D            Gm
  Echo in the distance
             F
  Like the sound
        Bb              Eb  bass Eb - D
  Of a windmill going round
  Cm                Dm
  Guess I'll always be
                Gm
  A soldier of fortune.

       Gm / Bb / C / Gm
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 going 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
       Eb             F
  Yes, I can hear the sound
         Bb           Eb bass Eb - D
  of a windmill going round
     Cm               Dm
  I guess I'll always be
                Gm
  a soldier of fortune.
     Eb         F
  I guess I'll always be
                G  (major chord)
  a soldier of fortune.
