(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay

by Matt Rogers




Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothin' is gonna come my way

Now I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Look like nothing is gonna change
Everything still remains the same
And I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

I'm sittin' 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 on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
