Dock Of The Bay (acoustic)

My first tab, hope its alright! This is how I play it on my acoustic, and I think it 
sounds great.  Sometimes I use a 1 
capo 1 for fun but its not needed. It's a great song, enjoy! 


   verse 1: 
   G                      B7 
   Sittin' in the morning sun 

           C                    C  Bb  A 
   I'll be sittin' in the evening come 

   G                       B7 
   Watching the ships roll in, 

                C                      C Bb A 
   then I watch them roll away again...yea 



       G                                   Em 
   I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay 

        G                         Em 
   watching the tide roll away 

           G                                         A 
   Oh, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay 

               G         E 
   wasting time 


   verse 2: 
     G                       B7 
   I left my home in Georgia 

       C                  C Bb A 
   Headed for the Frisco bay 

             G                       B7 
   'Cause I had nothing to live for 

          C                         C Bb A 
   like nothings gonna come my way 



         G                                   Em 
   I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay 

        G                         Em 
   watching the tide roll away 

           G                                         A 
   Oh, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay 

               G         E 
   wasting time 


   Bridge: 
   - 
   G                      D                        C 
     Looks like nothing's gonna change 

   G                         D                     C 
     Everything 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 


   verse 3: 
         G                           B7 
   Sittin' here resting my bones 
           C                                     C Bb A 
   and this loneliness won't leave me alone 
        G                            B7 
   These 2000 miles I roamed 
         C                         C Bb A 
   just to make this dock my home 


       G                                   Em 
   I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay 

        G                         Em 
   watching the tide roll away 

           G                                         A 
   Oh, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay 

               G         E 
   wasting time
