Thin Lizzy – Soldier Of Fortune lyrics

A soldier of fortune came home from war
And wondered what he was fighting for
This sad-eyed soldier, he broke down and cried
Oh he was so broke up inside

When will it end
When will it end
The bells toll
For those about to die

The battle's over the war is won
But this soldier of fortune he will carry on
He will carry on when all hope is gone
He will carry on

He's trained to kill and kill he will
As we march along
Singing just another soldier song
Just another soldier song

I am a soldier of fortune
Destined to keep on marching
I can hear the pipers calling

I am a soldier of fortune
Destined to keep on marching
I can hear the pipers calling
