Lyrics

Sittin' in the morning sun I'll be sittin' when the evening comes watching the ships roll in and then I watch them roll away again, yeah I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay watching the tide roll away I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting time I left my home in Georgia headed for the Frisco Bay because I've had nothin' to live for and look like nothin's gonna come my way So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay watchin' the tide roll away I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting 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 Sitting here resting my bones And this loneliness won't leave me alone It's 2,000 miles I've roamed Just to make this dock my home now I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay watchin' the tide roll away I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting time
