G - No capo

Verse 1

G                      B
Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
        C                   B Bb A
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
G                       B
Watching the ships roll in,
       C               B Bb A
then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah.

Chorus 1

    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
             G          E
watching the tide roll away.
             G                          A
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
        G     E
wastin' time.

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 2

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    D       C
Look like nothing's gonna change.
G  D   C
Ev'rything still remains the same.
G D             C               G
I can't do what ten people tell me to do,
F                 D
so I guess I'll remain 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 3

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.
