When My Ship Comes In Lyrics by Clint Black
What do you say when it's over? Don't know if I
A high roller even when the chips are down To
Clint Black & Steve Wariner Did you ever wake up in
Clint Black & Bruce Hornsby (Leon Russell - Chris Stainton) Why don't
You were the first thing that I thought of When
I never liked the rain until I walked through it with
Well I sit here all alone No one's gonna do
Move slowly to my dresser drawers Put my blue jeans
Blue Kentucky highway, headin' for the line She hadn't said
Looking for the feelings That used to tell me something's
I remember well the day we wed I can see that
Got a big leather suitcase, all I own's inside Seems I've
Nothin' on Earth that'll get me hummin' Like a heat
We've all seen enough wrong and right To know everything's
Walkin' away I saw a side of you That I
I oughta know the look in another's eyes When there's
No sun on the Rockies, not even the light of
Maybe I took for granted You'd be around To pick
Bottle of scotch whiskey not very smooth Like snake bite
Clint: I've been bound to leave you We've known that for a
What do you say when it's over? Don't know if I
(Clint Black/Hayden Nichols) There's something talkin' in the wind Whispering
A high roller even when the chips are down To
On a barstool like a damn fool Hoping she won't think
Tiny peices of my heart Like confetti everywhere Hidden sorrows in the
Now, I'm not talking tough, Telling the truth ought to be
In a world of confusion I follow my heart Beyond all
Reba McEnTire & Clint Black Amazing grace, how sweet the sound That
(Waylon Jennings) Lord, it's the same old thing Fiddle and guitar Where do
There's a burnin' silver lining, lighting up the sky Ahead of
(Clint Black/Hayden Nichols) Behind every good man stands a good woman Though
Clint Black & Steve Wariner Did you ever wake up in
Look around any old crowded bar You'll see a million reason,
She asked me how love gets along with me all by

Paragraph Lyric

No sun on the Rockies, not even the light of day
I feel that old cabin fever coming on
But I know where I'll be when lady luck finally blows my way
She'll put the wind in my sails and I'll be gone
It won't be long before my ship comes in

Gonna sail right out of Colorado
Catch a ride on a warm trade wind to Puerta
No-One-Knows
She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in
Gonna board and go whichever way the wind blows
I'll be off to find myself once again in Puerta
No-One-Knows When my ship comes in
Maybe I'm only dreaming but it sure seems real
Somehow the wind doesn't chill quite to the bone
Or could it just be the fever I'm running on an uneven keel
Not losing sight of why I'm up here alone

Chorus

It won't be long before my ship comes in
She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in
It won't be long before my ship comes in
She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in
When my ship comes in
No sun on the Rockies, not even the light of day    I feel that old cabin fever coming on    But I know where I'll be when lady luck finally blows my way    She'll put the wind in my sails and I'll be gone    It won't be long before my ship comes in       Gonna sail right out of Colorado    Catch a ride on a warm trade wind to Puerta    No-One-Knows    She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in    Gonna board and go whichever way the wind blows    I'll be off to find myself once again in Puerta    No-One-Knows When my ship comes in    Maybe I'm only dreaming but it sure seems real    Somehow the wind doesn't chill quite to the bone    Or could it just be the fever I'm running on an uneven keel    Not losing sight of why I'm up here alone       Chorus       It won't be long before my ship comes in    She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in    It won't be long before my ship comes in    She'll find me waiting when my ship comes in    When my ship comes in
