Deep Purple - Soldier of Fortune
(Blackmore/Coverdale)
From "Stormbringer" (1974)
--------------------------------
Key: Gm

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.
