Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sittin' in the morning sun,
I'll be sittin' when the even comes
I watchin' as the ships come in
And watch 'em roll away again
Verse 2
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,wasting time
Left my home in Georgia,
Verse 3
Headed for the 'Frisco bay,
I have nothing to live for,
like nothings gonna pass my way
I'm a just a sittin' at the dock of the bay,
Verse 4
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,wasting time
A Mistake,nothings ever gonna change,
every day,everything'll make up my mind.
Verse 5
I can do what ten people tell me to do
I'll get down on my knees and pray
A Mistake,nothings ever gonna change,
every day, everything'll make up my mind.
Verse 6
I can do what ten people tell me to do
I'll get down on my knees and pray
I'm sittin' and restin' my bones,
loneliness won't leave me alone,
Verse 7
Two thousand miles from home,
Just to make this deck my home
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Verse 8
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,wasting time
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll away,
Sittin' on the dock of the bay,wasting time
Verse 9
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
