'Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay' 
 

‘SITTIN' ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY’
 
 
Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again
 
Refrain
 
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
 
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I had nothin to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way
 
So I'm just...

 
Refrain
 
Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same
 
Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home
Now, I'm just...
 





 
'OTIS REDDING',
