(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

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Cuz I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way

So, I'm just sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
On the dock of the bay

Looks 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 lonely mess won't leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
The dock of the bay

Wastin' time
Wastin' time
On the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
On the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
On the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
On the dock of the bay
Waistin' . . .
