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.

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.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

Well, well

[Instrumental]

Hey mama, is it true what they 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.
Heard some talk about papa doin' some store-front preachin'
Talked about saving souls and all the time leaching.
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.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

Ugh

[Instrumental]

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, steal to pay his bills.
Hey mama, folks 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 mama 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.
Yes he was, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

My daddy was (papa was a rolling stone.)
Yes, he was.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
