Lyrics
It was the 3rd of September
That day I'll always remember
That was the day that my Daddy died
Never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothing but bad things about him
Mamma, I'm counting on you to tell me the truth
And she said,
Papa was a rolling stone
Wherever he lay his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
Hey Mamma, 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 or borrow to pay his last bill
So Mamma, I' depending on you to tell me the truth
She said,
Papa was a rolling stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone, yeah, was alone
Nothing but alone Papa was a rolling stone
Wherever he lay his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone, yeah
Once again I say,
Papa was a rolling stone
Wherever he lay his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone, was alone, yeah
Nothing but alone I (Papa was a)
Ain't gonna leave me (Papa was a)
Oh, tell me the truth (Papa was a)
Papa was a) A rolling stone
