[Verse]

G                      B
Sittin' in the morning sun
        C              C B Bb  A
I'll be sittin' in the evening come
G                       B
Watching the ships roll in,
       C                C B Bb A
then I watch them roll away   again, yeah


[Chorus]

    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G          E
watching the tide roll away
             G                          A
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G    E
wasting ti---ime


[Verse]

G                 B
I left my home in Georgia
C              C B Bb  A
Headed for the Frisco bay
G                       B
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
    C                          C B Bb A
and look like nothing's gonna come my way


[Chorus]

    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G          E
watching the tide roll away
             G                          A
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G    E
wasting ti---ime


[Bridge]

G      D      C2
  Look like nothing's gonna change
G      D         C2
       Everything still remains the same
G      D             C2         G
     I can't do what ten people tell me to do
F                    D
   So I guess I'll remain the same


[Verse]

G                        B
Sittin' here resting my bones
C                           C B Bb  A
and this loneliness won't leave me alone
G                       B
These 2000 miles I roamed
        C           C B Bb A
just to make this dock my home


[Chorus]

    G                          E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
             G          E
watching the tide roll away
             G                          A
ooh I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
        G    E
wasting ti---ime


[Outro]

G             E
G             E

(whistle over these two chords and fade out)

Great job, chorus needs fixin' though.

What I use is: G, B7 (Or B), C, A for the first two lines of the chorus. I think it sounds better :)

Buen trabajo, John, nice job. I play bass in a group in Sevilla (Andalucía - SPAIN) and we perform "The Dock of the Bay" in C, instead of G, because our singer is a woman and she likes singing in that musical note. I like quite a lot your work. In my opinion, it's perfect. Congratulations.

The E's should be minor. U can tell because of the fact that he whistles the minor pentatonic scale and the first e major in the chorus is a Bm or B not to sure
