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

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

Traduction en Français
Assis sur le quai de la baie
"

Assis dans le soleil du matin
Je serai toujours là quand le soir viendra,
Observant les bateaux rentrer au port
Et je les regarderai repartir aussi, yeah,
Je suis assis sur le quai de la baie,
Observant la marée repartir, ooh,
Je ne suis qu'assis sur le quai de la baie,
À perdre mon temps
J'ai quitté ma maison en Georgie,
Je me suis dirigé vers la Baie De Frisco
Je n'avais pas de raison de vivre
On dirait que rien ne va croiser mon chemin,
Alors je ne fais que m'asseoir sur le quai de la baie,

Observant la marée repartir,
Je suis assis sur le quai de la baie,
À perdre mon temps
On dirait que rien ne va changer,
Tout reste pareil,
Je ne peux faire ce que 10 personnes me demandent de faire,
Alors je resterai le même aussi, yeah,
Assis ici, je laisse mes os se reposer
Et cette solitude ne veut pas me laisser seul, oui,
J'ai ramé pendant 2000 milles
Juste pour faire en sorte que ce quai soit le mien
je vais seulement aller m'asseoir sur le quai de la baie

Observant la marée repartir
assis sur le quai de la baie,
À perdre mon temps

I was playing this and my girlfriend told me she thought I was "gonna play good music". This might be a bump in the road

Just me! I would have made an excuse to take home, then I'd have gotten rid of her, I cant chill with a soulless woman that trouble.

My brother was 19 years old when he was killed in a head on. This was one of his favourite songs and for years I couldn’t stand to hear it . But now I find it quite comforting.
