Verse 1:

	G                       B
	Sittin' in the mornin' sun
	         C                         A
	I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
	 G                      B
	Watching the ships roll in
	        C                   A
	An' I watch 'em roll away again, yeah


	     G                           E
	[1: Sittin' on] the dock of the bay
	[2: So I'm just gonna sit on]
	[2: Now I'm just gonna sit at]
	              G          E
	Watchin' the tide roll away, mmm
	      G                          A
	Just sittin' on the dock of the bay
	         G     E
	Wastin' time

Verse 2:

	I left my home in Georgia
	Headed for the 'Frisco Bay
	I had nothin' to live for
	Looked like nothin's gonna come my way

[repeat chorus]


	G        D    C
	  Looks like nothin'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 remain the same

Verse 3:

	Sittin' here restin' my bones
	And this loneliness won't leave me alone
	Listen - two thousand miles I roamed
	Just to make this dock my home

[repeat chorus]

Coda (repeat to fade, w/whistling and surf effects):

	G                          E
