[Intro]
Em  D  A  Em


[Verse]
       Em
I have often told you stories
D
about the way
  Em                          Bm
I lived the life of a drifter

waiting for the day
         Em
When I'd take your hand and sing you songs
     D
Then maybe you would say
Em                           Bm
Come lay with me and love me
                        Bm  A  G
And I would surely stay


[Chorus]
G      A                Em    C
  But I feel I'm growing older
        D                 G
And the songs that I have sung
B           Em
Echo in the distance
         D
Like the sound
     G             C
Of a windmill going round
Am               Bm
Guess I'll always be
             Em
A soldier of fortune.


[Solo]
Em  A  Em  A
Em  G  A  Em


[Verse]
     Em
Many times I've been a traveler
  D
I looked for something new
   Em                                Bm
In days of old when nights were cold

I wandered without you
Em
But those days I thought my eyes
    D
Had seen you standing near
Em                            Bm
Though blindness is confusing
                              Bm  A  G
It shows that you're not here.


[Chorus]
G      A                Em    C
  But I feel I'm growing older
        D                 G
And the songs that I have sung
B           Em
Echo in the distance
         D
Like the sound
     G             C
Of a windmill going round
Am               Bm
Guess I'll always be
             Em
A soldier of fortune.


[Outro]
     Em            D
Yes, I can hear the sound
     G             C
of a windmill going round
  Am               Bm
I guess I'll always be
             Em
a soldier of fortune.
  C         D
I guess I'll always be
             E
a soldier of fortune.
