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

I'm 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 had nothin' to live for
Looks like nothin's gonna come my way

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Gonna watch that tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Looks like nothin's gonna change, no
Everything, everything remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll just remain the same, yeah

Looks like nothin'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 restin' my bones
And this lonliness just won't leave me alone
Two thousand miles, I roam
Just to make this dock my home

I'm just gonna sit, on the dock of the bay
Gonna watch the tide, oh
Gonna watch the tide, roll away
[Incomprehensible]
Gonna waste, waste
[Incomprehensible]

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Sittin'
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Sittin'
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
