Papa Was A Rollin' Stone (Dh Stripped Down Mix)

on Choice

Lyrics

It was the third of September; that day I'll always remember,
'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 depending on you to tell me the truth.
