Dock Of The Bay   (ESP 1143)   Bob Elling, Elmer Sheffield, Jr.
OPENER    Basic

Circle
Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes

Men star right and roll it around
Allemande the corner and weave around, now
Watchin' the ships roll in
Meet and promenade her again
Sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Here's where the heads (sides) square thru and go four
You do a dosado, you know
You touch 1/4 and the girl run right
Girl reverse flutter and go
Sweep 1/4 more, swing and promenade that floor
Sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay

Men star right and roll it around
Allemande the corner and weave around, now
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Dosado and promenade
Sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time


CLOSER    Basic

Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone

Men star right and roll it around
Allemande the corner and weave around, now
It's 2000 miles I roamed
Meet your girl, promenade her on home
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time
