PEGGY LEE : (SITTIN’ ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY [1969]

Η διασκευή του κλασικού του Otis Redding από την Peggy Lee είναι σαγηνευτική, τουλάχιστον ισάξια του original / This cover of Otis Redding’s classic by Peggy Lee is truly mesmerizing, at least equal to the original.

Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ comes
Watchin’ the ships roll in
And I watch ’em roll away again
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ my time
Left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
I have nothin’ to live for
Look like nothin’s gonna come my way
So, I’m gonna sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ my time
Looks like nothing gonna change
Everything is still the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me do
I guess I’ll remain the same
Sittin’ here restin’ my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
For 10000 miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home
(This dock is my home)
Oh, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the time roll away
Sittin’ by the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the time roll away
Sittin’ by the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the time roll away
