When The Ship Comes In Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

Oh, the time will come up when the winds will stop 

And the breeze will cease to be breathin' 

Like the stillness in the wind before the hurricane begins 

The hour that the ship comes in 


And the sea will split and the ships will hit 

And the sands on the shoreline will be shakin 

And the tide will pound and the wind will sound 

And the mornin will be a breakin 


The fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path 

And the seagulls, they'll be a smilin 

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 be buried on the bottom of the ocean 


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 


And 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' 


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 theyll know that it's for real 

The hour that 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 drowned there in the tide 

And like Goliath they'll be conquered
