Judy Collins - Fortune Of Soldiers



[Intro]
Am  C    D

[Verse 1]
        Am                        F         C
Was the fortune of soldiers to be always at war
                  G             F
Sighting down the barrel at whatever comes?
         Am                             F        C
Till the fighters forgot what they were doing it for
               G           D
And reason was lost in the sound of the drums


[Verse 2]
          Am                        F       C
'Twas the fortune of soldiers to be always alone
               G                  F
Forgetting the faces of all their loved ones
Am                        F              C
Far from their daydreams, far from their homes
                G              D
Love songs were drowned in the sound of the drums


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be
                            C
It's a fantasy, they didn't know about you


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be
                                Am
They weren't imagining what one dreamer can do


[Verse 3]
         Am                     F           C
'Tis the fortune of bankers and builders of arms
               G         F
To worship the profit however it comes
Am                  F              C
Up in their towers, sheltered from harm
             G             D
Far from the smoke and the sound of the drums


[Verse 4]
         Am                     F             C
'Tis the fortune of dreamers to see what they see
                 G              F
To live with the scorn till the miracle comes
   Am                     F           C
To teach us the music and show us the key
                  G           D
And the chorus to silence the sound of the drums


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be
                            C
It's a fantasy, they didn't know about you


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be
                                Am
They weren't imagining what one dreamer can do


[Instrumental]
Am  F  C  G  F  Am  F  C  G  D


[Verse 5]
         Am                     F           C
'Tis the fortune of children to have such a choice
                 G           F
To grow up to be dreamers or builders of guns
Am                 F         C
Born to be angels, born to rejoice
            G         D
Not to grow up to the sound of the drums


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be
                            C
It's a fantasy, they didn't know about you


[Chorus]
                   G                    G/B
Don't you know the dream has come true?
                          C
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
                   F
When they say that peace can never be

It's a fantasy
