    Lyrics

    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
    (Yeah,) I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
    Watchin' the tide roll away,
    (Ooh, I'm just) sitting 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
    (So,) I'm just gonna sittin'on the dock of the bay
    Watchin' the tide roll away,
    Ooh, I'm (just) sitting on the dock of the bay, wastin'
    Time
    Looks like nothin's gonna change;

    Everything, everithing remains the same
    I can't do what ten people tell me to do
    So I guess I'll remain the same
    Looks like nothin's gonna change;
    Everything, everithing 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 loneliness won't leave my alone
    Two thousand miles, I roam
    Just to make this dock my home
    Now, I'm just gonna sit, on the dock of the bay
    Ooh, I watch the tide
    No, I'm gonna watch the tide roll away
    On the dock of the bay
    Ooh wastin', wastin', Ooh no, no no no
