(SITTIN ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY

Otis Redding

 

Sittin' in the morning sun


I'll be sittin' when the evening comes


Watching the ships roll in


Then I watch them roll away again, yeah



I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay


Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh


I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay


Wastin' time



 

I left my home in Georgia


Headed for the Frisco Bay


Cuz I've had nothing to live for


And look like nothing's gonna come my way



So, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay


Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh


I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay


Wastin' time



 

Looks 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, listen


Sittin' here resting my bones


And this loneliness won't leave me alone, listen


Two thousand miles I roam


Just to make this dock my home, now



I'm just gon' sit at the dock of a bay


Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh


Sittin' on the dock of the bay


Wastin' time
