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

    Then they’ll raise their hands, sayin’ we’ll meet all your demands, but we’ll shout from the bow your days are numbered, and like Pharoah’s tribe they’ll be drownded in the tide, and like Goliath, they’ll be conquered!

    Wow, wow, wow. What a powerful song! He wrote it after he nearly wasn't allowed into a hotel with his girlfriend, Joan Baez, for looking too scruffy. Obviously he wasn't very pleased about that.

    "..And the sun will respect every face on the deck, the hour that the ship comes in.." Bravo, Mr. Dylan.
