Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay

Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the ‘Frisco bay
‘Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
And look like nothing’s gonna come my way

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time

Look like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So, I guess I’ll remain the same

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
These 2000 miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time
