Otis Reading ME Amanda Shaw



The other weekend, Ben and I headed out for a day of fun in the sun with a cocktail, fine dining and music. Just another day…(SITTIN’ ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY


- THIS IS NOT the song written by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper, which is here.


Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be fried when the evenin’ come
Watching the ships roll in
And then roll another again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching my money roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Lovin’ my life

I left my home in New Orleans
Headed for St. Louis bay
‘Cause I have no commitments
And look like it’s just gonna stay that way

So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the Crimson Tide roll away
Ooo, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Drinkin’ wine

Look like nothing’s gonna change
Everything better remain the same
I won’t do what anyone tells me to do
So I guess I’ll remain insane, yes

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this happiness won’t leave me alone
It’s 50 miles I roamed
Just to hear Amanda Shaw perform

Now, I’m just gonna sit at bar by the bay
Feeling my sobriety roll away
Oooo-wee, sittin’ at the bar by the bay
Wastin’ time

(whistle)


Bay St. Louis
Mississippi

The incredible Ms. Amanda Shaw

A small stretch of their beautiful beach on the Gulf.

And, of course, Oysters Rockefeller.
It’s good to be me.
