Dock Of The Bay

Otis Redding

intro G
 GB
  verse1     Sittin' in the morning sun
 CA
           I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
 GB
           Watching the ships roll in
 CA
           Then I watch 'em roll away again
 GEm
  chorus     I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GEm
           Watching the tide roll a-way
 GA
           I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
 GEm
           Wastin' time---------------

verse2 I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Coz I had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way, so I'm
chorus
 GDC
  bridge     Looks like nothing's gonna change
 GDC
           Everything still remains the same   (this line is wrong)
 GDC
           I can't do what them people tell me to do
 FD
           So I guess I'll remain the same
verse3 Sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
This two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home
chorus
outro G Em
Please excuse the bridge. I don't sing this and I know the words are wrong.

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.
