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. Solo: Gm / C / Gm / C / 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.
