Song Author Otis Redding og Steve Cropper Lyrics by: Otis Redding og Steve Cropper Performer: Otis Redding Submitted by: geiristudio
[G]Sittin' in the morning [B]sun  
I'll be [C]sittin' when the [B]even[Bb]ing    [A]come
[G]Watching the ships roll [B]in,  
then I [C]watch them [B]roll a[Bb]way a[A]gain, yeah

I'm [G]sittin' on the dock of the [E]bay  
watching the [G]tide roll a[E]way  
ooh I'm just [G]sittin' on the dock of the [A]bay  
wasting [G]time[E]    

I [G]left my home in [B]Georgia
[C]Headed for the [B]Fris[Bb]co    [A]bay  
'Cause [G]I've had nothing to [B]live for
and look like [C]nothing's gonna [B]come [Bb]my    [A]way  

So, I'm [G]sittin' on the dock of the [E]bay  
watching the [G]tide roll a[E]way  
ooh I'm just [G]sittin' on the dock of the [A]bay  
wasting [G]time[E]    

[G]Look [D]like [Cadd9]nothing's gonna change
[G]Every[D]thing [Cadd9]still remains the same
[G]I can't [D]do what[Cadd9]ten people [G]tell me to do
[F]So I guess I'll re[D]main the same

[G]Sittin' here resting my [B]bones
and this [C]loneliness won't [B]leave [Bb]me a   [A]lone
These [G]two thousand miles I [B]roamed
just to [C]make this [B]dock [Bb]my    [A]home

Now I'm [G]sittin' on the dock of the [E]bay  
watching the [G]tide roll a[E]way  
ooh I'm just [G]sittin' on the dock of the [A]bay  
wasting [G]time[E]    

[G]    [E]    [G]    [E]    

Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening come
Watching the ships roll in,
then I watch them roll away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
and look like nothing's gonna come my way

So, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do whatten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

Sittin' here resting my bones
and this loneliness won't leave me alone
These two thousand miles I roamed
just to make this dock my home

Now I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
wasting time
