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


G G A A
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E7 E7
Watching the tide roll away
G G A A
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E7 E7
Wastin' ti--------me


G G B B
I left my home in Georgia
C C A A
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
G G B B
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
C C 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 E7 E7
Watching the tide roll away
G G A A
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E7 E7
Wastin' ti--------me


G G D D C C
Look like nothing's gonna change
G G D D C C
Everything still remains the same
G G D D C C
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 A A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
G G B B
It's two thousand miles I roamed
C C A A
Just to make this dock my home


G G A A
Now I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
G G E7 E7
Watching the tide roll away
G G A A
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
G G E7 E7
Wastin' ti---------me

Perfect. Check youtube for 'musicteacher2009' who has an instructional on this song, he shows a very cool way to use the C to A transition for added effect
