Dock of the Bay
Otis Redding
key of G
intro      G
           G                      B
verse1     Sittin' in the morning sun
                   C                         A
           I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
           G                       B
           Watching the ships roll in
                  C                     A
           Then I watch 'em roll away again
               G                          Em
chorus     I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
                        G           Em
           Watching the tide roll a-way
                    G                          A
           I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
                    G               Em
           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
           G     D     C
bridge     Looks like nothing's gonna change
           G      D           C
           Everything still remains the same   (this line is wrong)
           G       D            C
           I can't do what them people tell me to do
           F                  D
           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
outro      G   Em
Please excuse the bridge.  I don't sing this and I know the words are wrong.

Sound good when played slow with a lazy up-down stroke pattern.
