Bristol 3 - People

Sittin' on the dock of the bay....


Sitting in the morning sun

I'll be sitting when the evening comes

Watching the ships roll in

And I watch 'em roll away again




Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time



I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay

'Cause I had nothin' to live for

And looks like nothing's gonna come my way


So I'm just
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away

I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what the people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same


Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home


Now, I'm just
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time


For all the people of Bristol
