Ship in the Sky
(Woody Guthrie)

Well, a curly-headed girl with a bright shining smile
Heard the roar of a plane as it sailed through the sky
To her playmates she said, with a bright twinkling eye
My Daddy flies that ship in the sky

   My Daddy flies that ship in the sky
   My Daddy flies that ship in the sky
   My Mama's not afraid and neither am I
   'Cause my Daddy flies that ship in the sky

Then a button-nosed kid, as he kicked up his heels
He said, My Daddy works in the iron and the steel
My Dad builds the planes and they fly through the sky
And that's what keeps your daddy up there so high

   That's what keeps your daddy up there so high
   That's what keeps your daddy up there so high
   My Dad builds the planes and they fly through the sky
   And that's what keeps your daddy up there so high

Then a freckle-faced kid pinched his toe in the sand
He says, My Daddy works at that place where they land
You tell your mama, don't be afraid
My Dad'll bring your daddy back home again

   My Dad'll bring your daddy back home again
   My Dad'll bring your daddy back home again
   Don't be afraid when it gets dark and rains
   My Dad'll bring your daddy back home again
