Okay,  any tabs appreicated.  If not - I'll just have to whistle.

Ok, here's the lyrics, chords and a little bit of tab.  I've only tab'ed the
main riff used in the chorus.  On the record Steve Cropper plays some very
neat doublestops during most of the song -- a real masterpiece in soul
rhythm guitar.


		   (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay
		   ================================

		     Otis Redding & Steve Cropper


Verse 1:
	G                      B
	Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
	        C                   B Bb A
	I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
	G                       B
	Watching the ships roll in,
	       C               B Bb A
	then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah.

Chorus:
	    G                          E
	I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
	             G          E
	watching the tide roll away.
	             G                          A
	Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
	        G     E
	wastin' time.

Verse 2:
	I left my home in Georgia,
	headed for the 'Frisco Bay.
	I have nothing to live for,
	it look like nothin's gonna come my way.

Chorus:
	So, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay,
	watching the tide roll away.
	Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
	wastin' time.

Bridge:
	G    D       C
	Look like nothing's gonna change.
	G  D   C
	Ev'rything still remains the same.
	G D             C               G
	I can't do what ten people tell me to do,
	F                 D
	so I guess I'll remain the same, yes.

Verse 3:
	I'm sittin' here restin' my bones,
	and this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes.
	Two thousand miles I roamed
	just to make this-a dock my home.

Chorus:
	Now, I'm just gon' sit at the dock of the bay,
	watching the tide roll away.
	Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
	wastin' time.

Main riff:
	The riff used during the choruses goes something like this...
