I never got a chance to see him Never heard nothin' But bad things about him Mama, I'm depending on you To tell me the tuth And 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 rolling stone, my son, yeah Wherever he laid his hat was his home And when he died All he left us was alone Hey, Mama, is it true What they say That Papa never worked A day in his life? And Mama, some bad talk Goin' around town Sayin' that Papa had Three outside children And another wife And that ain't right Heard some talk about Papa doing Some storefront preaching Talking about saving your souls And all the time leeching Dealing in debt and stealing In the name of the Lord Mama just hung her head and said 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, dag gom it Wherever he laid his hat was his home And when he died All he left us was alone 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 Or steal to pay his bills Hey, Mama, folks say Papa Never was much on thinkin' Spent most of his time Chasin' women and drinkin' Mama, I'm depending on you To tell me the truth And Mama looked up with a tear In her eye and said, Son 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, lone, lone, alone Papa was a rolling stone Wherever he laid his hat was his home And when he died All he left us was alone
