Due to the cut and paste deal, the rythem may be off.
(I.E. where the chords are located in comparason to the words.
but you should be able to figure it out.

Verse 1:
	G                      B
	Sittin' in the mornin' sun,
	        C                   B Bb A
	I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes.
	G                       B
	Watching the ships roll in,
	       C               B Bb A
	then I watch 'em 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
	Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
	        G     E
	wastin' time.
Verse 2:
	G                      B
	I left my home in Georgia,
	C                   B Bb A
	headed for the 'Frisco Bay.
	G                      B
	I have nothing to live for,
	C                   B Bb A
	it look like nothin's gonna come my way.
Bridge:
	G    D       C
	Look like nothing's gonna change.
	G  D   C
	Ev'rything still remains the same.
	G D             C               G
	I can't do what ten people tell me to do,
	F                 D
	so I guess I'll remain the same, yes.
Verse 3:
	G                      B
	I'm sittin' here restin' my bones,
	C                   B Bb A
	and this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes.
	C                   B Bb A
	Two thousand miles I roamed
	G                      B
	just to make this-a dock my home..

	Repeat Chorus and end

Hi there,

Nice tab, though I reckon the chorus sound better this way:
Chorus:
G E7/9 E
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay,
G E7/9 E
watching the tide roll away.
G A
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
G E
wastin' time.

Check it out.

Cheers,
FS

watching the tide roll away.
G A
Oo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay,
G E
wastin' time.
