Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when
The evening come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch em
Roll away again, yeah

I'm sitting on
The dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh, 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
And look like nothing's
Gonna come my way

So, I'm just gonna sit
On the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh, I'm sitting on
The dock of the bay
Wasting time

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, yes

Sitting here resting my bones
And this loneliness
Won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just gonna sit
At the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Owee, sitting on
The dock of the bay
Wasting time
