[Intro}
| G | % |


[Verse 1]
       G              Em/F#       C          G
Oh the time will come up when the winds will stop
        Em          C           G
And the breeze will cease to be breathin’
         G                Em/F#           C           G
Like the stillness in the wind before the hurricane begins
    G             D          G
The hour that the ship comes in
        Em7/F#                 C          G
And the sea will split and the ships will hit
         Em7/F#       C                 G
 And the sands on the shoreline will be shaking
        G         Em/F#         C/E        G
And the tide will sound and the waves will pound
         G       C    Em/B D    C  G     | G |
 And the morning will be   brea-ea-kin’


[Verse 2]
       G           Em/F#         C               G
Oh the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path
        Em       C       G
And the seagulls will be smilin'
        G            Em/F#     C       G
And the rocks on the sand will proudly stand
    G             D          G
The hour that the ship comes in 
        Em7/F#                     C            G
And the words that are used for to get the ship confused
     Em7/F#      C                G
Will not be understood as they're spoken
       G             Em/F#         C             G
Oh the chains of the sea will have busted in the night
       G             C      Em/B   D C G     | G |
And be buried on the bottom of the o-o-cean


[Verse 3]
  G         Em/F#       C         G
A song will lift as the main sail shifts
        Em   C               G
And the boat drifts unto the shoreline
        G           Em/F#      C           G
And the sun will respect every face on the deck
    G             D          G
The hour that the ship comes in
        Em7/F#                C         G
And the sands will roll out a carpet of gold
         Em7/F#  C          G
For your wearied toes to be touchin'
        G           Em/F#      C              G
And the ship's wise men will remind you once again
         G          C     Em/B D  C G
That the whole wide world is   wa-a-tchin'


[Solo]
| G    Em/F# C/E | C/E G | Em C | G | 
| G Em | C G | G D | G |
| Em7/F#   C/E | C/E G | Em7/F# C | G | 
| Em7/F# | C/E G | G D | D C | Em/B D/A | G | % |

[Verse 4]
        G        Em/F#         C                    G
Oh the foes will rise with the sleep still in their eyes 
            Em              C                      G
And they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'
            G                    Em/F#
But they'll pinch themselves and squeal 
            C                  G
And they'll know that it's for real, 
    G             D          G
The hour that the ship comes in
            Em7/F#
And they'll raise their hands 
             C               G
Sayin' we'll meet all your demands
          Em7/F#         C                   G
But we'll shout from the bow: “Your days are numbered!”
         G         Em/F#            C               G
And like Pharoah's tribe they'll be drownded in the tide 
         G       C       Em/B D  C  G         G
And like Goliath they'll be   co-on-quered

Really fantastic job on this! That Em7/F# sure crops up in a lot of Bobby's songs :-)
