Dock Of The Bay


by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again

G - - - / B - - - / C - > - / A - - - /  x4  //

 C:	Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

G - - - / E - - - /  x2  / G - - - / A - - - / G - - - / E - - - //

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
I have nothin' to live for
Look like nothin's gonna come my way

 C:	Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

 B:	Looks like nothin'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

G - D - / C - - - /  x2  /  x2  / F - - - /    / D - - - /    //

Sittin' here restin' my bones
Wish this loneliness would leave me alone
For 2,000 miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home

 C:	Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
