    Lyrics

    Oh, the time will come up when the wind will stop
    And the breeze will cease to be breathin'
    Like the stillness in the wind 'fore the hurricane begins
    The hour when the ship comes in

    Oh, the seas will split and the ship will hit
    And the shoreline sands will be shakin'
    Then the tide will sound and the wind will pound
    And the mornin' will be breakin'

    Oh, the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path
    And the seagulls, they'll be smilin'
    And the rocks on the sand will proudly stand
    The hour that the ship comes in

    And the words they 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 at the bottom of the ocean

    Oh, the seas will split and the ship will hit
    And the shoreline sands will be shakin'
    Then the tide will sound and the wind will pound
    And the mornin' will be breakin'

    A song will lift as the mainsail shifts
    And the boat drifts onto the shoreline
    And the sun will respect every face on the deck
    The hour when 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'
