Verse

Am(sus2)
Before our time

Am(sus2)
Upon a noun

Am    G           C
There stood still a ship

Standing proud

Am(sus2)
She tows lines

Am(sus2)
Transforms words

Am G       E
To be more than they are


Am(sus2)
When they are alone

Am(sus2)
On their own

Am G        C
Pointing to no one



Chorus

G        D
Ships displaying

   G     D
The quality

   G          F
The rank craft state

     G    C
Skill dignity


G        D
When our ship comes

G    F
Into nations

        G       C
Who will tow the line?


Verse
Am(sus2) Am(sus2) | Am  G   C
Am(sus2) Am(sus2) | Am  G   E

             Am(sus2)
Ships passing into the night

Am(sus2)
Taking flight

    Am    G       C
with goods for everyone


Chorus

Ships are led by
The compass ones
These shipshape daughters
These shipshape sons

When our ship draws
In the nations
He shall tow our line


Bridge:

F  Dm
       Our ships of fools
F  Dm                Am
       From failing schools
  C6       Dm
We need now hear


the children
They desperately
Are needing to be, Be set free

They are afraid
But so are we
This can not be

See hope
Our captain riding
Throughout theses heavens
Bringing peace

We're shipping out
Our men again
Oh I pray it will end

These tunes
Are never ending
Thank you for sending
Them to our hands

Verse

Before our time
Upon a noun
There stood still a ship

Standing proud

She tows lines
Transform words
To be more than they are
When they are alone
On their own

Am(sus2)       Em
She's pointing to
   C
The one
