SITTING ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY
Alamo Music Corp. o/b/o Barricade Music


Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening come
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again
Yeah, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time


I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
I have nothing to live for
Look like nothing gonna come my way
So, I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time


Look like nothing gonna change
Ev'rything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people want me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same


Sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home
Now, I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
