                [Intro]
G    G    G    G    

[Verse 1]
G                      B7
Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
        C                        A
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
G                       B7
Watching the ships roll in,
       C                     A
Then I watch 'em roll away a-gain, yeah.

[Chorus]
    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G           E
Watching the tide roll a-way.
              G                          A
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time.

[Verse 2]
  G               B7
I left my home in Georgia,
C                      A
Headed for the 'Frisco Bay.
G                          B7
'Cause I've had nothing to live for,
              C                      A
And look like nothing's gonna come my way.

[Chorus]
                  G                      E
So I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay,
             G           E
Watching the tide roll a-way.
         G                          A
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time.

[Bridge]
G       D    C               
  Looks like, nothing's gonna change,
G    D      C         
  Everything 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 re-main the same, yes.
G                       B7
Sittin' here resting my bones
         C                          A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone. "(Listen)"
     G                    B7
It's two thousand miles I roamed,
        C                 A
Just to make this dock my home.

[Chorus]
                   G                      E
Now I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
             G          E
Watching the tide roll away.
         G                          A
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
        G  E
Wastin' time.
