Intro: G5 / F5 / Eb5

        G5
I have often told you stories

I have often told you stories
F5
about the way
   G5
I lived the life of a drifter
D5
  waiting for the day
          G5
When I'd take your hand and sing you songs
      F5
Then maybe you would say
G5
Come lay with me and love me
D5                      bass D5 - C5 - Bb5
  And I would surely stay


Bb5       C5                G5   bass G5 - F5 - Eb5
  But I feel I'm growing older
            F5                Bb5
  And the songs that I have sung
   D5            G5
  Echo in the distance
             F5
  Like the sound
        Bb5              Eb5  bass Eb5 - D5
  Of a windmill going round
  C5                D5
  Guess I'll always be
                G5
  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 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
       Eb5             F5
  Yes, I can hear the sound
         Bb5           Eb5 bass Eb5 - D5
  of a windmill going round
     C5               D5
  I guess I'll always be
                G5
  a soldier of fortune.
     Eb5         F5
  I guess I'll always be
                G5  (major chord)
  a soldier of fortune.
