DigiTrad:
ALL THE TIMES YOU'RE GONE
ALL USED UP
CANNONBALL BLUES
DADDY, WHAT'S A TRAIN?
DUMP THE BOSSES OFF YOUR BACK (2)
GREEN ROLLING HILLS
HOOD RIVER ROLL ON
I BELIEVE IF I LIVED MY LIFE AGAIN
I REMEMBER LOVING YOU
I SAW MY COUNTRY'S FLAG GO DOWN
KID'S LIBERATION SONG
OLD DOLORES
ORPHAN TRAIN
PHOEBE SNOW
QUEEN OF THE RAILS
ROCK SALT AND NAILS
ROCKABYE BABY
STARLIGHT ON THE RAILS
THE DADDY SONG
THE EPILOGUE
THE GOODNIGHT-LOVING TRAIL
THE TELLING TAKES ME HOME
TOLONO
TOUCH ME
WEEPY

I thought there was a thread on this song at Mudcat, but I couldn't find it. I think I first heard it at a concert not long before Utah Phillips died. Since he lived nearby, he continued to perform in our area for quite some time after he stopped travelling to performances.

SHIP'S GONNA SAIL
(Bruce Phillips & Paul Kamm)

Working on a ship we may never sail on
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Working on a ship we may never sail on
But we're gonna build it anyway

Sojourner Truth said "ain't I a woman?"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Mother Jones said, "no child labor!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Eugene Debs said "no more prisons!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Joe Hill said "Don't mourn, organize!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday

Working on a ship we may never sail on
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Working on a ship we may never sail on
But we're gonna build it anyway

Mother Bloor said "sit down, sit down!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Paul Robeson said "I won't stop singing!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Martin Luther King said "I have a dream!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Malcolm X said "Power to the people!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday

Working on a ship we may never sail on
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Working on a ship we may never sail on
But we're gonna build it anyway

Dorothy Day said "swords into plowshares!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Cesar Chavez said "Viva la huelga!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Judi Bari said "No more compromise!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Phil Berrigan said "No more atom bombs!"
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday

Working on a ship we may never sail on
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Working on a ship we may never sail on
But we're gonna build it anyway

Now they're all gone but we're still building
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Ship's gonna sail to peace and justice
Ship gonna sail, gonna sail someday

Working on a ship we may never sail on
Ship's gonna sail, gonna sail someday
Working on a ship we may never sail on
But we're gonna build it anyway
We're gonna build it anyway
We're gonna build it anyway
