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

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

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay
Cause I have nuthin' to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come my way

So, I'm just gonna sit on a dock of a bay
Watching the tide roll away, oh
I'm sittin' on a dock of a bay
Wastin' time

Look like nothings 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 restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone, listen
Two thousand miles I Rome
Just to make this dock my home

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