(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay

	  			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: 
	    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: 
	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: 
	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.
