Papa Was a Rollin' Stone - 70s Greatest Hits/70s Music/70s Music All Stars

Written by:Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong

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 nothin' but bad things about him

Momma I'm depending on you to tell me the truth

 

And momma just hung her head and said

 

Son 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

 

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

 

Well well

 

Hey momma is it true what they say

That papa never worked a day in his life

 

And momma some bad talk goin' round town

Sayin' that papa had three outside children and another wife

 

And that ain't right

 

Heard them talking papa doing some store front preachin'

 

Talked about saving souls and all the time leeching

 

Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the lord

 

Momma 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 my son

 

Wherever he laid his hat was his home

 

And when he died all he left us was alone

 

Uh

 

Hey momma 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 momma folks say that papa never was much on thinking

 

Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking

 

Momma I'm depending on you to tell me the truth

 

And momma looked up with a tear in her eye and said

Son papa was a rolling stone

Well well well well

Wherever he laid his hat was his home

 

And when he died all he left us was alone

Lone 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

 

I 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
