Papa Was A Rolling Stone  Temptations

------------------------------...................







[Em] It was the third of September;
That day I'll always re-[Am]member,
'Cos that was the day that my daddy [Em]died.

[Em] I never got a chance to see him;
Never heard nothin' but,
[Am] Bad things about him.
Mama I'm depending on you;
To tell me the [Em]truth.

Chorus 1:

(Spoken):
Mama just hung her head and said, "Son...

[Em] Papa was a rollin' stone;
Wherever he laid his [Am]hat, was his home.
And [Em]when his died;
[Am] All he left us was a-[Em]lone."

Verse 2:

Hey, mama, I [Em]heard Papa,
Call himself a jack of all trades;
Tell me, is that what sent Papa,
To an [Am]early grave?
Folks say Papa would beg,
Borrow or steal to [Em]pay his bills.
Hey, Mama, folks say;
Papa was never much on thinkin';
Spend most of his time,
Chasin' [Am]women and drinkin'!
Mama I'm depending on you;
To tell me the [Em]truth.

Chorus 2:

(Spoken):
Mama just hung her head and said, "Son...

[Em] Papa was a rollin' stone;
Wherever he laid his [Am]hat, was his home.
And [Em]when his died;
[Am] All he left us was a-[Em]lone."

(Repeat to Fade)
