Joe Diffie - Ships That Don't Come In
Joe Diffie recorded these words written by Paul Nelson and Dave Gibson in and I hear them several times a week on my favorite country legends radio station. Each time I listen to them I am transported to the s to vivid childhood memories of my maternal grandmother who told me all the things we would do when her ship came in. We would take wonderful trips from our little town in Grimes County, Texas to exotic far-away places like Maryland to visit her brother Arnold and his wife Amelia and California to visit her favorite sister Orrie in Los Angeles. She would buy my mother a new piano and my dad a new car. She would buy me anything I wanted.
I could tell he'd had a tough life By the way he sat and stared And me, I'd come to push and shove So I pulled up a chair. We talked of roads untraveled We talked of love untrue Of strings that come unraveled We were kings and kindred fools And just when I'd hit bottom That old man raised his glass And said at least we had our chances There's those who never have. So here's to all the soldiers Who have ever died in vain The insane locked up in themselves The homeless down on Main To those who stand on empty shores And spit against the wind And those who wait forever For ships that don't come in. A Night To Remember. Almost Home. Back To The Cave. Bigger Than The Beatles.
