Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
i needed to sing in a step down from the versions i saw in G.  
the F#m is played with the B and e strings open.
there are a few walk-ups and downs on the last line of each verse, that you can fit in with a little practice.
this is my first submission, hope it works for you.

When The Ship Comes In – B. Dylan
       D              F#m
Oh the time will come up
         G          D
When the winds will stop
        Bm          G           D
And the breeze will cease to be breathin'.
         D                F#m 
Like the stillness in the wind
           G           D
Before the hurricane begins,
    D             A          D
The hour that the ship comes in.
        F#m                    G         D
And the sea will split And the ship will hit
        F#m          G                 D  
And the sands on the shoreline will be shaking.
         D         F#m
Then the tide will sound 
        G          D
And the waves will pound
        D       G         A         D
And the morning will be a-brea  --- king.

       D           F#m           G               D
Oh the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path
        Bm       G         D
And the seagulls will be a-smilin'
        D            F#m       G       D
And the rocks on the sand will proudly stand
    D             A          D
The hour that the ship comes in.
        F#m                        G               D
And the words that are used for to get the ship confused
     F#m         G                D
Will not be understood as they're spoken
       D             F#m           G             D
Oh the chains of the sea will have busted in the night
       D             G             A      D
And be buried on the bottom of the o ---  cean

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

       D         F#m           G                    D
Oh the foes will rise with the sleep still in their eyes 
            Bm              G                      D
And they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'
            D                    F#m
But they'll pinch themselves and squeal 
            G                  D
And they'll know that it's for real, 
    D             A          D
The hour that the ship comes in.
            F#m
And they'll raise their hands 
             G               D
Sayin' we'll meet all your demands
          F#m            G                 D
But we'll shout from the bow Your days are numbered
         D         F#m              G              D
And like Pharoah's tribe they'll be drowned in the tide 
         D       G          A     D
And like Goliath they'll be con---quered

What do you mean, B and e-strings open? 2-4-4-2-0-0 ? Would be F#m11 then. Does not sound right to my ears.

sorry, i did not know the technical term for the chord. it replaces the odd slide that he does with an Am chord. to make the chord, i thumb the low E, it's a trick i learned years ago and will incorporate that F#m11 in other songs too.
hope this helps.
