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

This is a song that i can sit listening too on a river bank just fishing as the whole world passes by in its madness and fast pace craziness. This song is just....peaceful.

Catherine Sparks

Totally agree

Prison Mike

The moment you realize, you're not the alien, everyone else is. You look at everyone else, and just watch em.
The madness, the crimes, the jealousy, the cheating, the everything, and you just chill, one day at a time.
I differ from the loneliness part of the song though.

Prison Mike

Exactly, life.


The Rock Hall of Fame has pieces of the airplane....I literally choked up and bowed. This man would LOVE how his song has traversed all the souls who commented.


Great song...just appreciating the small things in life...

Donovan Phillips

Still banging 2022 💥💥💥💥💥
