When The Ship Comes In by Bob Dylan

Album: The Times They Are A-Changin'Released: 1964
  • Dylan wrote this violent and vengeful song in a hotel room in August 1963. He was in an angry mood when he penned it, as a hotel clerk who thought he looked like a deadbeat had refused him admission. Dylan finally got a room after Joan Baez vouched for his good character.

I was at the Dylan tribute show at Madison Square Garden in 1992. The Clancy Bros. with Tommy Makem did a stirring rendition of this song. "Dylan with an Irish accent."Barry - New York, Nc
