Papa Was a Rollin' Stone Songtext

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
Mama I'm dependin' on you
Tell me the truth
Mama looked up and said son

Papa was a rolling stone son
Whereever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone

Where the hell are you daddy
That's what I'm sayin'
Down on my knees and tears and I'm prayin'
Wishin' and hopin' my dreams could come true
So I could feel like the other kids do
A young child, but not complete as a whole
Before I was born you up and strolled
Mama was there
But you was up in the wind
You never even knew my name
And then you never wrote, called, let alone came by
As a youth it was hard to wonder why
But now I'm older and I don't dwell on self pity
Thinkin', about the life you didn't give me
I remember when I used to tell lies
When people would ask, I'd fantasize
Thinkin' of stories to make you look good
But the real truth was you was never no good
People would say I looked just like you
But rest assured I don't act like you
I'm more than that
My mama reared me better
And you can best believe I'm much more
So believe that

Mama is it true what they say
That papa never worked a day
In his life?
And mama there's some bad talk
Goin' round that papa
Had three out-side children
And another wife
And that ain't right

Heard some talk
About papa doin' some store front preachin'
Talkin' about savin' souls
And all the time leachin'
Dealin' in dirt
And stealing in the name of the Lord
Mama looked up and said son

Papa was a rolling stone
Whereever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone

It's been said you gave me something you never had
But that's not always true and it's sad
To find myself missing you when I did
But who knows the reasons you did what you did
I can't help but wonder why
You lived your life as a big fat lie
You act like you had no responsibilities
Cos if you did, it's a bet that you owuldn't be
Stealin'Beggin'Hustlin'and Schemin'
You could'a got a job, but did you know
The meaning of work
I'm talkin' about an honest days pay
But you was too lazy to be that way
Always tryin' to take the easy route
That's what they tell me, so I don't doubt
It for a moment, not for a sec
Because you lacked all your self respect
But it's too late for you that is
Tomorrow I'll be goin' on about my biz
And so it's time to put the past behind
Erase the anger and clear my mind
I want to forget the little bit I know
And make sure I never sink so low
Cos I want my kids to grow up and know
That I was always there because I loved them so
And that's the least thing that I can do
But that's a lot more than I got from you

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, or steal
To pay his bills
Hey mama folks say papa never was much on thinkin'
Spend most of his time chasin' women and drinkin'
Mama I'm depending on you
To tell me the truth

Repeat chorus to fade.
