Soldier Of Fortune Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I'll follow my dreams like a soldier of fortune
I'd rather chase rainbows than stay here
And grow old and never know

How high I could fly if I reach for the sky
It's my turn to try
So I'll take my best hold

I've done my time in the beer and wine mines
Tryin' to climb with my own kind of rhymes
It ain't easy

I've had my doubts what they're mostly about
Whether I should reach out to the crowd
To just try to please me

Chasin' the brass rein and bendin' guitar strings
Are the things I enjoy most of all
We can just call this a mission of mercy
But the soldier of fortune should fall

(I'll follow my dreams)
I already know, it's a rough row to hoe
But I can't let go
I've been almost so close a few times

My sights are all set, it's my chance to get
Somethin' better than whatever
It is that I'm leavin' behind

Chasin' the brass rein and bendin' guitar strings
Are the things I enjoy most of all
We can just call this a mission of mercy
But the soldier of fortune should fall

I'll follow my dreams like a soldier of fortune
I'd rather chase rainbows than stay here
And grow old and never know

How high I could fly if I reach for the sky
It's my turn to try
So I'll take my best hold

I'll follow my dreams like a soldier of fortune
