Otis Redding – Sittin’ on the dock of the bay     By Momilandia


G           Em  
     Sittin' in the mornin' sun, 
             C                  Em  A 
     I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes. 
     G                       Em 
     Watching the ships roll in, 
            C               Em   A 
     then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah. 
 
         G                          Em 
     I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, 
                  G          Em 
     watching the tide roll away. 
                  G                          A 
     Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay, 
             G     Em 
     wastin' time. 
 
 
     G  Em  C  Em  A 
     I left my home in Georgia, 
     headed for the 'Frisco Bay. 
     I have nothing to live for, 
     it look like nothin's gonna come my way. 
 
 
     G  Em  C  Em  A 
     So, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay, 
     watching the tide roll away. 
     Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay, 
     wastin' time. 
 
 
     G    D       C 
     Look like nothing's gonna change. 
     G  D   C 
     Ev'rything 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. 
 
 
     G  Em  C  Em  A 
     I'm sittin' here restin' my bones, 
     and this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes. 
     Two thousand miles I roamed 
     just to make this-a dock my home. 
 
 
     G  Em  C  Em  A 
     Now, I'm just gon' sit at the dock of the bay, 
     watching the tide roll away. 
     Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay, 

     wastin' time.
