Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay
Standard Tuning: EADGBe

[Intro]
G    G    G    G    

[Verse 1]
G                      B7
Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
        C                        A
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
G                       B7
Watching the ships roll in,
       C                     A
Then I watch 'em roll away a-gain, yeah.

[Chorus]
    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G           E
Watching the tide roll a-way.
              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
'Cause I've had nothing to live for,
              C                      A
And look like nothing's gonna come my way.

[Chorus]
                  G                      E
So I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay,
             G           E
Watching the tide roll a-way.
         G                          A
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G  E
Wastin' time.

[Bridge]
G       D    C               
  Looks like, nothing's gonna change,
G    D      C         
  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 re-main the same, yes.
G                       B7
Sittin' here resting my bones
         C                          A
And this loneliness won't leave me alone. "(Listen)"
     G                    B7
It's two thousand miles I roamed,
        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.

About the artist behind Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay:

Otis Ray Redding, Jr. (September 9, 1941 – December 10, 1967) was an influential American deep soul singer. According to the website of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (where he was inducted in 1989), Redding's name is "synonymous with the term soul, music that arose out of the black experience in America through the transmutation of gospel and rhythm & blues into a form of funky, secular testifying."[1]
