Songtekst

It was the third of September
That day I'll always remember, yes I will
'cause 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 looked at him and said: "Son,
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"

Hey mama, is it true what you say that papa never worked a day in his life
And mama, some bad talk going around town saying that papa had three outside children and another wife, and that ain't right
Huh, heard some talk about papa doing some storefront preachin
Talkin bout saving souls and all the time leechin
Dealin in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord

Mama just hung her head and said: "Son,
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 rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone"

Hey mama, I heard papa call 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 say papa never was muck on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinkin
Momma I'm depending on you to tell me the truth

Mama looked up with a tear and her eye and said: "Son,
Papa was a rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone
Papa was a rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone"
