Cue Sheet

OPENER

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

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

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

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

Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay
 
 

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

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

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 gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Oooo-wee, sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

(whistle)

Lyrics by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper.
