Soldier of Fortune, you're a gypsy horseman
Riding off into the night
You wanna be free, but it's not easy to leave a good woman behind

Midnight rider, step into the light
It shines right across the road
Your lady stands waiting, with tears in her eyes
How could you hurt her so?

Soldier of Fortune, you're playing a game with her heart
She's aching, she's breaking
Her small world is falling apart
And a good woman's hard to find
A good woman's hard to find
Don't the old folk speak with caution
'Bout a solider of fortune

Solider of Fortune, your day star is rising
Shining to guide you home
Forget your pride, you got nothing to hide
You'd never have made it alone

Soldier of Fortune, you're playing a game with her heart
She's aching, she's breaking
Her small world is falling apart
And a good woman's hard to find
A good woman's hard to find
Don't the old folk speak with caution
'Bout a solider of fortune
