(Sittin' on) the dock of the bay

Sittin` in the morning sun
I`ll be sittin` till the evening comes
watching the ships roll in
and then I watch`em 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

Left my home in Georgia
headed for the Frisco Bay
I have nothing to live for
looks like nothing`s gonna come my way
So I´m sittin` on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
sittin`on the dock of the bay
wasting time

Looks like nothing`s gonna change
everything still remains the same
I can´t do what the people tells me to do
so I guess I´ll remain the same

Sittin´ here resting my bones
and this loneliness won´t leave me alone
two thousand miles I roam
just to make this dock my home
I´m sittin` on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
sittin`on the dock of the bay
wasting time
