                     Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

                                 by

                           Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell did a cover of this song, which was originally done by Otis Redding. 
It's almost exactly the same, but I like his version better, so I felt like I 
should tab it.

For the verse, play:

|-3---2---0--------0----|
|-3---0---1--------2----|
|-0---2---0--------0----|
|-0---1---2--------2----|
|-2---2---3--3-2-1-0----|
|-3---------------------|

For the chorus, play:

|-3---0---3---0---3---0---3---0---|
|-3---0---3---0---3---2---3---0---|
|-0---1---0---1---0---2---0---1---|
|-0---2---0---2---0---2---0---2---|
|-2---2---2---2---2---0---2---2---|
|-3---0---3---0---3-------3---0---|

For the bridge, play:

|-3--2--0---3--2--0---3--2--0---1---2----|
|-3--3--1---3--3--1---3--3--1---1---3----|
|-0--2--0---0--2--0---0--2--0---2---2----|
|-0--0--2---0--0--2---0--0--2---3---0----|
|-2-----3---2-----3---2-----3---3--------|
|-3---------3---------3---------1--------|

And after the third chorus, just strum a G and an E.


Verse 1

Sittin' in the mornin' sun

I'll be sittin' when the evening comes

Watchin' the ships roll in

And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah


Chorus 1

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watchin' the tide roll away

Just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Wastin' time


Verse 2

I left my home in Georgia

Headed for the Frisco Bay

I have nothing to live for

Looks like nothing's gonna come my way, yeah


Chorus 2

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watchin' the tide roll away

Just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Wastin' time


Bridge

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


Verse 3

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones

And this loneliness won't leave me alone

For two thousand miles I've roamed

Just to call this dock my home


Chorus 3

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watchin' the tide roll away

Just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Wastin' time




And that's it.
