Lyrics
It was the third of September.

That day I'll always remember, yes I will.
Cause that was the day......... that my daddy died.
Well Well, I never got a chance to meet him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth.
Well she just hung her head and said;
Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.
Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) 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, there bad talk going around town saying that Papa had three more children and another wife.
And that s*** ain't right.
Folks said Papa did some store front preaching.
Talkin about saving souls and all the time leeching.
His dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.
Oh yeah and 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.
Papa was a rolling stone, well, well, well wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.

Uh!

Folk say that Papa was never much on thinking.
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.
And she said with a tear in her eye;

Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.
Papa was a rolling stone, well, well, well wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.
Papa was a rolling stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone.
Papa was a rolling stone til end...
