When My Ship Comes In
Written by: Clint Black
Performed by: Clint Black and Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
No Sun on the Rockies
Not even the light of day
I feel that old cabin fever commin' on
But I Know where I'll be
When lady luck finally blows my way
She'll put the wind in my sails & 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
Where no one knows
She'll find me waitin' when my ship comes in
Gonna board and go whichever way the wind blows…
I'll be off to find myself once again
And where no one knows
When my ship comes in

Maybe I'm only dreamin' But it sure seams real
Somehow the wind doesn't chill quite to the bone
Or could it just be the fever
I'm runnin' on an uneven keel
I'm losin sight of why I'm up here alone….

It won't be long before my ship comes in
Gonna sail right out of Colorado
Catch a ride on a warm trade wind
Where no one knows
She'll find me waitin' when my ship comes in
Gonna board and go whichever way the wind blows…
I'll be off to find myself once again
And where no one knows
When my ship comes in

It won't be long before my ship comes in
Where no one knows
She'll find me waitin' when my ship comes in
Where no one knows
