Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again

So, I'm gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And watch the tide roll away, mhm
I'm gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And waste my time

I 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 gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And watch the tide roll away, yah
I'm gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And waste mytime

Looks 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
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home

So, I'm gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And watch the tide roll away, mhm
I'm gonna sit on the dock of the bay
And waste my time

(whistling)
