(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding Lyrics

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