Dock Of The Bay

Otis Redding

 GB7
           Sittin' in the morning sun
 Cwalk up toA7
           I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
 GB7
           Watching the ships roll in
 CA7
           Then I watch 'em roll away again

 GE
chorus    Sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE7
              Watching the tide roll a-way
 GA
              sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE
              Wastin' time   

 GB7
           I left my home in Georgia
 CA7
           Headed for the Frisco Bay
 GB7
           I had nothing to live for
 CA7
           look like nothing's gonna come my way, so

 GE
chorus    I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE7
              Watching the tide roll a-way
 GA7
              sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE7
              Wastin' time   

 GDC
bridge   Looks like nothing's gonna change
 GDC
             Everything still remains the same
 GDC
             I can't do what ten people tell me to do
 FD
             So I guess I'll remain the same

 GB7
           Sittin' here restin' my bones
 CA7
           And this loneliness won't leave me alone
 GB7
           I'ts two thousand miles I roamed
 CA7
           Just to make this dock my home

 GE
chorus    Sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE7
              Watching the tide roll a-way
 GA7
              I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GE7
              Wastin' time

This will hopefully help you with the proper strum and sequence of the song. I know I didn't get all the barrs perfectly clear but it's good for a reference:) Peace!

Had a listen to the original song and your second line in the bridge is correct. The Em at the end of the verse (waisting time) is an E major in the original song.
