Deep Purple - Soldier of Fortune
From "Stormbringer" (1974)

Key: Gm
Intro: Gm / F / Eb
I have o[Gm]ften told you stories
I have often told you stories
[F]about the way
I l[Gm]ived the life of a drifter
[Dm] waiting for the day
When I'd t[Gm]ake your hand and sing you songs
Then m[F]aybe you would say
[Gm]Come lay with me and love me
[Dm] And I would surely sta[Bass]y[D-C-Bb]
[Bb] But I f[C]eel I'm growing o[Gm]lder[Bass] [G-F-Eb]
And the so[F]ngs that I have s[Bb]ung
E[D]cho in the di[Gm]stance
Like the so[F]und
Of a w[Bb]indmill going ro[Eb]und[Bass] [Eb-D]
[Cm]Guess I'll always [Dm]be
A soldier of f[Gm]ortune.
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
Yes, [Eb]I can hear the [F]sound
of a wi[Bb]ndmill going [Eb]rou[Bass]nd[Eb-D]
I g[Cm]uess I'll always [Dm]be
a soldier of f[Gm]ortune.
I g[Eb]uess I'll a[F]lways be
G (major chord)
a soldier of foRtune.
