WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN

 

  G                                                C              G             

1. Oh the time will come up when the winds will stop

Em                C                G

And the breeze will cease to be breathing

C             G

Like the stillness in the wind before the hurricane begins

D7             G      

The hour that the ship comes in.

G                               C              G

And the seas will split and the ship will hit

Em                 C                       G

and the sands on the shoreline will be shaking

C               G

and the tide will sound and the waves will pound

C       D7      G

and the morning will be breaking.

 


2. Oh the fishes will laugh as they swim out of thepath

and the seagulls they'll be a-smiling

and the rocks on the sand will proudly stand

the hour that the ship comes in.

 

And the words that are used for to get the shipconfused

will not be understood as they're spoken

for the chains of the sea will have busted in the night

and be buried on the bottom of the ocean. 

 

3. Oh a song will lift as the mainsail shifts

and the boat drifts unto the shoreline

and the sun will respect every face on the deck

the hour that the ship comes in.

 

Then the sands will roll out a carpet of gold

For your weary toes to be a-touching

and the ship's wise men will remind you once again

that the whole wide world is watching.

 

4. Oh the foes will rise with the sleep still in theireyes

and they'll jerk from their beds and think they'redreaming

and they'll pinch themselves and squeal and they'llknow that it's for real

the hour that the ship comes in

 

5. Then they'll raise their hands saying we'll meet allyour demands

but we'll shout from the bow your days are numbered

and like pharaoh's tribe they'll be drowned in the tide

like the lion they'll be conquered.
