Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I left my home in Georgia
And headed for the Frisco bay

Left allemande, dosado now
Allemande left and weave it I say
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Swing with your girl, promenade
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin time


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes


*Three thousand miles I've roamed
Just to make this dock my home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around
Dosado the corner girl you've found
Swing thru and the the boys you run
Half tag, walk & dodge, then a partner trade
Pass the ocean, recycle now
Swing that corner, promenade around
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin time


TAG

Chain the ladies over and back
Instrumental tag (whistle if you want)

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.
Recorded by Otis Redding.
