Lyrics

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 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

Look 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, 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

Sittin' on the dock of the bay

Wastin' time
