The Dock of the Bay
Otis Redding Lyrics


Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide, roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
And I headed for the Frisco Bay
'Cause I've got nothin' to live for
Looks like nothin's gonna come my way, so

I'm just come sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time

Looks like nothin's gonna change
Everything seems to stay the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
This two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home
Now I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
I'm wastin' time

■ "Sentado No Píer do Porto"

Sentado ao sol da manhã
Eu vou ficar sentado até que a tarde acabe
Vendo os navios chegando
Então eu vou vê-los partirem de novo
Sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...

Deixei minha casa na Georgia
Em direção à Baía de São Francisco
Não tinha nada pelo o que viver
Parece que nada vai cruzar o meu caminho

Então vou ficar sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...

Parece que nada nunca vai mudar
Tudo ainda está do mesmo jeito
Eu não posso fazer o que dez pessoas querem que eu faça
Então acho que eu vou continuar o mesmo.

Sentado aqui descansando meus ossos
Essa solidão não vai me deixar em paz..
Por 2000 milhas eu vaguei..
Apenas para fazer desse pier minha casa..

Agora vou ficar aqui sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...

“Sitting here resting my bones, and this loneliness won’t leave me alone.”

One of the most powerful lines I’ve ever heard in a song. R.I.P. to this LEGEND

I first heard this song in 2020. I was so overwhelmed and depressed and then I heard this song and I cried , I was weeping and crying my eyes out. It touched my soul and my heart. I can’t explain. His voice , the way he sang it, the lyrics , he really really meant it and I really really felt that. I drove to the beach next month and it helped me so much

David Ledfor

Smooth listening

Charlie Miller

First heard it as a seven year old In new Orleans. Absolute classic

Courtney Lemaire
