Thread Name: Lyr Req: One Ship Is Sailing (Tom Paxton)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Tom Paxton Song
ONE SHIP IS SAILING appears on 2 of Tom Paxton's albums: "Peanut Butter Pie" (1992) and "American Troubadour" (2003). I was able to transcribe this much from a couple of sound samples:

One star is shining, high in the evening sky,
Just over baby's head, soft as a lullaby.
That's where the sun man lives, down with the sandman's lies (?)
Here comes the....

...kiss in the silver sand.
Blow, blow, the breezes blow, cooling the baby's brow.
Soft, soft, the breezes blow. Baby's sleeping now.
Soft, soft, the breezes blow. Baby's sleeping now.
