Sittin' in the morning sun sittin' I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in then I watch 'em roll away again
I left my home in Georgia headed for the Frisco Bay
I've had nothing to live for it looks like nothing's gonna come my way
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay watchin' the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wastin' time
[ guitar ]
Looks like nothing's gonnar change everything still remains the same
I can't do what them people tell me to do so I guess I'll remain the same
Sittin' here restin' my bones this loneliness won't leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roamed just too make this dock my home
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay...
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay...
