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.
        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' time.
