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

  1. This is really good I have learnt heaps of new songs!

  2. +5 seems easier :)

  3. Katherine Gillis

    The chords of the last two lines should be switched.

  4. Last two lines are definitely backwards.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
