When The Ship Comes In

Bob Dylan

1. Oh the time will come up
            C          G
   When the winds will stop
   And the breeze will cease to be breathin`.
   Like the stillness in the wind
             C           G
   `Fore the hurricane begins,
                     D7         G
   The hour when the ship comes in.
   Oh the seas will split
           C         G
   And the ship will hit
   And the sands on the shoreline will be shaking.
   Then the tide will sound
           C         G
   And the wind will pound
                   C    G  D7    Am7 G   C G
   And the morning will be break--ing. 

2. Oh the fishes will laugh
   As they swim out of the path
   And the seagull they`ll be 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 ship confused
   Will not be understood as they`re spoken.
   For the chains of the sea
   Will have busted in the night
   And will be buried at the bottom of the ocean.

3. A song will lift
   As the mainsail shifts
   And the boat drifts on to 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-touchin`.
   And the ship`s wise men
   Will remind you once again
   That the whole wide world is watchin`

4. Oh the foes will rise
   With the sleep still in their eyes
   And they`ll jerk from their beds and think they`re dreamin`
   But they`ll pinch themselves and squeal
   And know that it`s for real,
   The hour when the ship comes in.
   Then they`ll raise their hands,
   Sayin` we`ll meet all your demands,
   But we`ll shout from the bow your days are numbered.
   And like Pharaoh`s tribe,
   They`ll be drownded in the tide,
   And like Goliath, they`ll be conquered.
