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

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide, roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Left my home in Georgia
Headed far for Frisco Bay
I had nothin' to live for
Looks like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time

Looks like nothin's gonna change
Everything, everything remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones
And this lonliness won't leave me alone
It's Two thousand miles I roamrd
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Oooo - wee, Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time...
