lyrics Papa Was A Rolling Stone

It was the third of September
That day I'll always remember, yes I will
'Cos that was the day that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothing but bad things about him
Mama I'm depending on you to tell me the truth
Mama just hung her head and said son
Papa was a rolling stone wherever he laid his hat was his home all he left us was alone
Ooh, Papa was a rolling stone, my son, yeah wherever he laid his hat was his home
All he left us was alone well, well
Hey, Mama is it true what they say that papa never worked a day in his life
And Mama, some bad talk going around town saying
Papa had three outside children
And another wife and that ain't right
Heard some talk about papa doing some store front preaching
Talking 'bout saving souls and all the time leeching
Dealing in dirt, and stealing in the name of the Lord
Mama just hung her head and said
My Papa was a rolling stone my son wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone
Hey, papa was a rolling stone, dad gum it
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone, ooh
Hey, Mama
I heard Papa called himself a Jack of all trades
Tell me, is that what sent
Papa to an early grave
Folks say Papa would beg borrow, steal to pay his bills
Hey, Mama, folks said Papa never was much on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking
Mama I'm depending on you to tell me the truth
Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said son
Well, well, well, well hey, yeah
All he left us was alone
I said
Oh, oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, yeah
All he left us was alone
I said
Yes, he was my son oh, oh, oh, oh
All he left us was alone
I said
