Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I left my home in Georgia, headed for the Frisco Bay
The men star right and turn it one time tonight
Left allemande and you weave
Well I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Swing the lady round and then you all promenade
Well I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now those heads square thru and get 4 hands you do
Dosado that corner there
Star thru and then pass the ocean
Swing thru, spin your top
Square thru 3 hands and go
Swing that lady round and promenade her you go
Well I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting time


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Sides pass thru, do a partner trade and then
Reverse flutter wheel and you sweep 1/4 more
Everybody do a double pass thru
Track 2, girls trade and then you swing thru
All 8 circulate, that corner swing
Swing that lady round and promenade her for me
Well I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay wasting time


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(Music)
Left allemande and you weave
(Music)
Swing that lady, promenade
(Music)
Well I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

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.
