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

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the time roll away
Oh

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Cause I had nothin' to live for
And look Like nothin's gonna come my way
So I'm just goin to sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the time roll away

Ooh
I'm sittin' on the dock the dock of the bay wastin' time
Look pop nothin's goin' to 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
Yes

Sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Yes

2000 miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home
Now I'm jus' gon' sit at the dock of a bay
Watchin' the time roll away
Ooh

Sittin' On the dock of the bay wastin' time
