Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun,
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come.
Watching the ships roll in,
Then I’ll watch ’em roll away again.

Yeah, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay,
Watching the tide roll away.
Ooh, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the day,
Wastin’ time.

I left my home in Georgia,
Headed for the Frisco bay.
I have nothing to live for,
Look like nothin’s gonna come my way.

So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay,
Watching the tide roll away.
Ooh, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the day,
Wastin’ time.

Look like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same.

Just sittin’ here resting my bones,
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone.
Two thousand miles I roam,
Just to make this dock my home.

Now I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay,
Watchin’ the tide roll away.
Ooh, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay,
Wastin’ time.
