Sittin' in the mornin' sun I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes Watching the ships roll in Then I watch 'em 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 'Cause I've had nothin' to live for It look like nothin's gonna come my way So I'm just gon' sittin' on the dock of the bay Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time Look like nothin'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, yes Sittin' here restin' 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 the bay Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh yeah Sittin' on the dock of the bay Wastin' time
