Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
I've had nothin' to live for
Looks like nothings gonna come my way

I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Gonna watchin' the tide roll away
Ah, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time, hey yeah

Looks like nothing's gonna change, Lord
Everything, everything remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yeah
Looks like nothing's ever gonna change
Lord, everything remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

I'm sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Lord, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Ah, gonna watch the tide roll, gonna watch the tide roll away
On the dock of my bay
Gonna waste

Gonna, I, I'm, I'm gonna, just I'm gonna sit, gonna sit
(Sittin' on the dock of the bay)
Ohh ohh yeah
(Sit)
Oh oh, ohh ohh ohh
(Sittin' on the dock of the bay)
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
(Sit)
(Sittin' on the dock of the bay)
