1st verse :
G G                      B B
Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
C C     -          B B-- A# A#-- A A
I'll be sittin' when the evenin'  comes
G G                       B B
Watching the ships roll in,
C C     -       B B-- A# A#-- A A
Then I watch 'em roll away   again, yeah


Chorus :
    G G                          E E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
             G G          E E
Watching the tide roll away, Oh
         G G                          A A
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
        G G     E E
Wastin' time


2nd verse :
  G G               B B
I left my home in Georgia
C C     -         B B-- A# A#-- A A
Headed for the 'Frisco  Bay
  G G               B B
I have nothing to live for,
      C C              B B-- A# A#-- A A
It look like nothin's gonna come my  way


Chorus :
    G G                          E E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
             G G          E E
Watching the tide roll away, Oh
         G G                          A A
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
        G G     E E
Wastin' time




Bridge :
G G  -  D D -  C C
 Look like nothing's gonna change
G G  -  D D-      C C 
   Everything still remains the same
G G - D D   -         C C    -     G G      -
  I can't do what ten people tell me to do,
F F                 D D
 So I guess I'll remain the same, yes



3rd verse :
    G G                       B B
I'm sittin' here restin' my bones,
  C C                 B B-- A# A#-- A A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
     G G                    B B
Yes, two thousand miles I roamed
 C C           B B-- A# A#-- A A
Just to make this-a dock my home



Chorus :
    G G                          E E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
             G G          E E
Watching the tide roll away, Oh
         G G                          A A
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
        G G     E E
Wastin' time
