Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay
Otis Redding


Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
Watching the ships roll in,
then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah.

CHORUS : I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
watching the tide roll away.
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
wastin' time.

I left my home in Georgia,
headed for the 'Frisco Bay.
I have nothing to live for,
it look like nothin's gonna come my way.

CHORUS + BRIDGE :
Look like nothing's gonna change.
Ev'rything still remains the same.
I can't do what ten people tell me to do,
so I guess I'll remain the same, yes.

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones,
and this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes.
Two thousand miles I roamed
just to make this-a dock my home.
