{sunday} sounds | sittin’ on the dock of the bay with otis redding

 

 bay

Justus fishing

Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ comes
Watching the ships roll in
and then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
headed for the ‘Frisco bay
‘Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
and looks like nothin’s gonna come my way

So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wastin’ time

Looks 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, yes

Sittin’ here resting my bones
and this loneliness won’t leave me alone
It’s two thousand miles I roamed
just to make this dock my home

Now, I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
watching the tide roll away
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wastin’ time

. . . . . whistle . . . .
