(sitting on) the dock of the bay lyrics – tom jones

sittin’ in the morning sun
i’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
watching the ships roll in
then i watch ’em roll away again
i left my home in georgia
headed for the frisco bay
’cause i’ve had nothing to live for
and it looks like nothing’s gonna come my way
yeah, i’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
watchin’ the tide roll away
sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wastin’ time
looks like nothing’s gonna change
everything still remains the same
what i can’t do, what ten people tell me to do
so i guess i’ll remain the same
sittin’ here restin’ my bones
this loneliness won’t leave me alone
two thousand miles i roamed
make this key west dock my home
i’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
watchin’ the tide roll away
sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time
sittin’ on the dock of the bay
watchin’ the tide roll away
sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time
sittin’ on the dock of the bay
