Dock Of The Bay  

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

G G E E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E E
Watching the tide roll away
G G A A
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E E
Wastin' time

G G B B
I left my home in Georgia
C C B B Bb Bb A A
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
G G B B
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
C C B B Bb Bb A A
And looks like nothin's gonna come my way

G G A A
So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
G G E E
Watching the tide roll away oooh
G G A A
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E E
Wastin' time

G G D D C C
Looks like nothing's gonna change
G G D D C C
Everything still remains the same
G G D D C C G G
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
F F D D
So I guess I'll remain the same, listen

G G B B
Sittin' here resting my bones
C C B B Bb Bb A A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
G G B B
It's two thousand miles I roamed
C C B B Bb Bb A A
Just to make this dock my home

G G E E
Now I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
G G E E
Watching the tide roll away oooh
G G A A
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E E
Wastin' time (whistle to fade out)

I am assuming by C, you meant C on the third fret with a B major shape. This is the easiest way to play this piece so if you can clarify that for the user it would be great. Good job and Otis Redding is a prodigy.
