INTRO: e--------------|- B--------------|- G--------------|- D--------------|- A----------5-5-|- E--3---3-------|- G A Bb B Sittin' in the mornin' sun, C B Bb A I'll be sittin' when the day's done G A Bb B Watching the ships roll in, C B Bb A then I watch 'em roll away again. G E Sittin' on the dock of the bay, G E watching the tide roll away. G A Sittin' on the dock of the bay, G E wastin' time. I left my home in Canada, headed for the 'Frisco Bay. I got nothing to live for, it look like nothin's gonna come my way. CHORUS BRIDGE: G D C Look like nothing's gonna change. G D C Ev'rything 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. I'm sittin' here restin' my bones, this loneliness won't leave me alone. Ten thousand miles I roamed just to make this dock my home. CHORUS BRIDGE VERSE 1 CHORUS SOLO OVER: G E
