Papa was a Rollin' Stone

Norman Whitfield, Barrett Strong / The Temptations: All Directions (1972)

It was the third of September; that day I'll always remember, 
Bbm
'Cos 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 depending on you, to tell me the truth. 
Mama just hung her head and said; "Son... (spoken) 
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, my son; 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,

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 was never much on thinkin'; 
Spend most of his time chasin' women and drinkin'! 
Mama, I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth. 
Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said; "Son... (spoken) 
Papa was a rollin' stone; (well well well well) 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". 
Papa was a rollin' stone; ...
