Sittin' in the morning sun
An I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I'll watch 'em roll away again

Yeah I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the ti-de roll away
Ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting ti-me

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

So I'm just gone sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the ti-de roll away
Ooh I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting ti-me

Look hard, 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

Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now I just gone sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the ti-de roll away
Ooh sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting ti-me

(Whistling)
