Verse 1:
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.
Chorus:
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
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
G G E E
wastin' time.
Verse 2:
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
I have nothing to live for,
C C B B Bb Bb A A
it look like nothin's gonna come my way.
Bridge:
G G D D C C
Look like nothing's gonna change.
G G D D C C
Ev'rything 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, yes.
Verse 3:
G G B B
I'm sittin' here restin' my bones,
C C B B Bb Bb A A
and this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes.
C C B B Bb Bb A A
Two thousand miles I roamed
G G B B
just to make this-a dock my home..
