Elisa – (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay lyrics

(Steve Cropper - Otis Redding )

Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I'll watch them roll away again
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time, yeah

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay, yeah
'Cause I have nothing to live for
Look like nothing's gonna come my way
So I've just to sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Just wasting time, hey, hey, yeah yeah...

Oh...It looks like nothing's gonna change
Yes everything remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
I guess I'll remain the same, yeah

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

So I've just to sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Just wasting time, ah wasting time...
