You will wait in the widows peak
And while you watch the ships come in
I will take the early train

And I will take the back streets
Down to New Orleans
Before the avenues are swallowed
By the morning heat

And you will watch the ships come in
And I will take the early train
And I will make it home

We're stronger than
Before the strain had broken us
And there is fight in us
I know

That it will take more than
A heavy rain
To silence us
When there's so much for us
I know

And you will wait
At your post until
You've been relieved
And warn us all
If seas are dangerous

But you should rest
For a little while
And I will watch the ships come in
I'll alert the citizens
I'll sound the alarm

We're stronger than
Before the strain had broken us
And there is fight in us
I know

That it will take more than
A heavy rain
To silence us
When there's so much for us
I know

They've tethered the ships
In the harbor
They've anchored the rest
At sea

We're stronger than
Before the strain had broken us
And there is fight in us
I know

We're stronger than
Before the strain had broken us
And there is fight in us
I know

That it will take more than
A heavy rain
To silence us
When there's so much for us
I know
