Soldier of fortune Lyrics - Deep Purple



Review The Song (2)


(Blackmore/Coverdale)

I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand
And sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
Come lay with me love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

Many times I've been a traveler
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 growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune
Yes, I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune

The story of real soldier of fortune | Reviewer: joe gondaloe | 6/22/11

I heard from my father, that this song based on the true story of Deep Purple private guard. A man who had retire from mercenaries legion. He has many experience in war, chaos, and rescue operation. But, he has problems with love. He can't express his true love to his girlfriend .. Probably he never express it.

Sorry about my English.

It shows that you're not here..." part. people pls pls dont ever forget or let others forget this blues rock band..
