When The Ship Comes In By Bob Dylan capo 3 C Em F C O the time will come up when the wind will stop, Am F C And the breeze will cease to be breathin'. C Em F C Like a stillness in the wind 'fore the hurricane begins. C F G C The hour that the ship comes in. Em F C O the seas will split and the ship will hit, Em F C And the sand on the shoreline will be shaking, C Em F C And the tide will sound and the waves will pound, C F G C F C And the morning will be breaking. C Em F C O the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path, Am F C And the sea gulls, they'll be smiling. C Em F C And the rocks on the sand will proudly stand, C F G C The hour that the ship comes in. Em F C And the words that are used for to get the ship confused, Em F C Will not be understood as they're spoken. C Em F C For the chains of the sea will be busted in the night, C F G C F C And be buried in the bottom of the ocean. C Em F C O a song will lift as the main sail shifts, Am F C And the boat drifts on to the shoreline. C Em F C And the sun will respect every face on the deck, C F G C The hour that the ship comes in. Em F C And the sand will roll out a carpet of gold, Em F C For your weary toes to be a-touchin'. C Em F C And the ship's wise men will remind you once again, C F G C F C That the whole wide world is watchin'. C Em F C O the foes will rise with the sleep set in their eyes, Am F C And they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'. C Em F C But they'll pinch themselves and squeal and they'll know that it's for real, C F G C The hour that the ship comes in. Em F C And they'll raise their hands sayin', "We'll meet all you demands." Em F C But will shout from the bow, "Your days are numbered." C Em F C And like Pharaoh's tribe they'll be found in the tide, C F G C F C And like Goliath, they'll be conquered.
