Sitting in the morning sun
I’ll be sitting when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again

Yeah I’m sitting 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’ve had nothing to live for
Look like nothing’s gonna go my way

[Repeat chorus]

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

Sitting here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home
Now I’m just gonna…

[Repeat chorus]

I’m just sitting here baby
All you’ve gotta do for me
Sitting on the dock of the bay baby
