G                                   B7
Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
.           C                                         A
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ comes
G                                         B7
Watching the ships roll in
.                     C                                   A
And then I watch ‘em roll away again, yeah

.       G                                           E
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
.                          G               E
Watching the tide roll away
.                        G                                           A
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
.              G    E
Wastin’ time

 

.  G                             B7
I left my home in Georgia
C                                         A
Headed for the ‘Frisco Bay
G                                              B7
‘Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
.                         C                                             A
And look like nothin’s gonna come my way

 

.                                G                                     E
So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
.                         G             E
Watching the tide roll away
.                        G                                           A
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
.              G    E
Wastin’ time

 

G          D      C                            G
Looks like, nothing’s gonna change
G           D                   C              G
Everything still remains the same
G           D            C                  G
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
F                           D
So I guess I’ll remain the same, yes

 






G                                        B7
Sittin’ here resting my bones
.                 C                                               A
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
.        G                                    B7
It’s two thousand miles I roamed
.               C                                A
Just to make this dock my home

.                                    G                                      E
Now I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
.                         G             E
Watching the tide roll away
.                        G                                           A
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
.              G    E
Wastin’ time
