#Okay,  any tabs appreicated.  If not - I'll just have to whistle.
#Ok, here's the lyrics, chords and a little bit of tab.  I've only tab'ed the
#main riff used in the chorus.  On the record Steve Cropper plays some very
#neat doublestops during most of the song -- a real masterpiece in soul
#rhythm guitar.

#Verse 1:
        [G]Sittin' in the mornin' [B]sun,
        I'll be [C]sittin' when the eve[B]ni[Bb]n' [A]comes.
        [G]Watching the ships roll [B]in,
        then I [C]watch 'em roll a[B]wa[Bb]y a[A]gain, yeah.
        I'm [G]sittin' on the dock of the [E]bay,
        watching the [G]tide roll a[E]way.
        Oo, I'm just [G]sittin' on the dock of the [A]bay,
        wastin' [G]time.[E]
Verse 2:
        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.
        So, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay,
        watching the tide roll away... ooo, 
        I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,wastin' time.
        [G]Look [D]like not[C]hing's gonna change.
        [G]Ev'[D]ryth[C]ing still remains the same.
        [G]I [D]can't do what [C]ten people tell [G]me to do,
        [F]so I guess I'll re[D]main the same, yeah.
Verse 3:
        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.
        Now, I'm just gon' sit at the dock of the bay,
        watching the tide roll away... ooo
        I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin'
