Soldier of Fortune

Burning with a passion turning into greed
The wandering fever caught ahold of me
Breaking out across the ocean to far away lands
Where people speak in tongues I don't understand

Coming and going
Going till I was gone
I never meant to hurt you, baby
I never meant you wrong
Rambled like a story
In a tug boat captain's song
The delta took me winding off
From where I once belonged

Choking buses
Risky planes
Last look exit off the Pontchartrain
If searching for treasure
I'd know what to do
Be a soldier of fortune and fight for you

Some folks are easy
To settle down real nice
Some will cut corners
For a notch in this life
Others they are driven
By a restless need
I guess that's the thing that sits next to me
On...
Choking buses, risky planes
Last look exit off the Pontchartrain
If searching for treasure I'd know what to be
A soldier of fortune and fight for thee

Choking buses
Risky planes
Last look exit off the Pontchartrain
If searching for treasure
I'd know what to do
Be a soldier of fortune and fight for you

Burning with a passion turning into greed
The wandering fever sure caught ahold of me
Rambled like a story
From a tug boat captain's song
The delta took me winding off
From where I once belonged
