Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

Otis Redding

Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

   I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
   Watching the tide roll away
   I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
   Wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the ‘Frisco bay
I’ve had nothing to live for
And look like nothin’s gonna come my way

Repeat Chorus

   Look like nothing’s gonna change
   Everything still remains the same
   I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
   So I guess I’ll remain the same

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Repeat Chorus

Whistle 2x
