Google "Tom Paxton". There are plenty of sites with Lyrics on.

You might even get a link to his own site <g>

Or you could be very last century and buy one of his books. I bought "The Honor of Your Company" when he was on tour here a couple of years ago. That has the lyrics to most of his songs in it.

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.

IMO, if Jim can't locate the lyrics then they just ain't on the web.

Probably far too late now, but I have the album Peanut Butter Pie and managed to transcribe:

One ship is sailing
Over the deep blue sea
One sail is billowing
Billowing the sweet baby
Home flies the yellow bird
Down sinks the red, red sun
Close, close those sleepy eyes
Baby's day is done
Close, close those sleepy eyes
Baby's day is done.

One ship is sailing
Off to a faraway land
Blue water rippling
Kissing the silver sand
Blow, blow, the breezes blow
Cooling the baby's brow
Soft, soft, the breezes move
Baby's sleeping now
Soft, soft, the breezes move
Baby's sleeping now

One star is shining
High in the evening sky
Just over baby's head
Soft as a lullaby
That's where the Sandman lives
Down where the Sandman lies
Here comes the Sandman now
Closing the baby's eyes

(For future reference if anyone else comes looking!)

Hello, Mengying. Welcome to the Mudcat.

Do you know who the Sandman is? The Sandman puts sand in children's eyes when it's time for them to go to sleep. Actually, that's just a a story someone started because children rub their eyes when they are tired.
