(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay Otis Redding – Lyrics with Chords

[Verse 1]
 
G                      B7 *
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
        C                        A
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
G                       B7
Watching the ships roll in
          C                    A
Then I'll watch 'em roll away again, yeah
 
[Chorus]
 
    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G          E
Watching the tide roll away
              G                          A
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time
 
[Verse 2]
 
  G               B7
I left my home in Georgia
C                      A
Headed for the 'Frisco Bay
G                 B7
I have nothing to live for
          C                      A
Look like nothin's gonna come my way
 
[Chorus]
 
                  G                      E
So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
             G          E
Watching the tide roll away
         G                          A
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time
 
[Bridge]
 
G     D     C               G
 Look like, nothing's gonna change
G    D             C         G
Everything still remains the same
G       D       C          G
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
F                  D
 So I guess I'll remain the same, yes
 
[Verse 3]
 
G                       B7
Sittin' here resting my bones
         C                          A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
     G                    B7
It's two thousand miles I roam
        C                 A
Just to make this dock my home
 
[Chorus]
 
                   G                      E
Now I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
             G          E
Watching the tide roll away
         G                          A
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time
 
G  E .......
