Dock Of The Bay  Otis Redding



        [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.
Chorus:
        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.

Chorus:
So, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay,
watching the tide roll away.
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
wastin' time.

Bridge:
        [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, yes.

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.

Chorus:
Now, I'm just gon' sit at the dock of the bay,
watching the tide roll away.
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
wastin' time.
