Looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally

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
Momma I'm depending on you to tell me the truth

Momma 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, yeah)
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

"Son," she said, "have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was nothing but a
While you were sitting home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dying
Sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked"

Oh, I, oh I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh I'm still alive
Hey, oh

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured you'll get your money's worth
The greatest show in Heaven, Hell, or Earth

You've got to see the show, it's a dynamo
You've got to see the show, it's rock and roll

I'm on the outside looking in
An' I want to be, an' I want to be back on the inside, with you
You are with somebody new, and I don't know what to do
'Cause I'm still in love with you
(In love with you)


I'm on the outside looking in
I don't want to be, I don't want to be left on the outside, all alone
Well, I guess I've had my day, and you let me go my way
Now it's me who has to pay-ay-ay

You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you

I broke apart my insides

 

(Help me) I've got no soul to sell
(Help me) the only thing that works for me
Help me get away from myself

 

I wanna ***** you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna ***** you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to God

Philosophers and ploughmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart, yeah

 

You can be the captain
And I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

Everybody listen to me
And return me my ship
I'm your captain, I'm your captain
Though I'm feeling mighty sick

   

I've been lost now for days uncounted
And it's months since I've seen home
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
Or am I all alone?

Seems to me, girl
You know I've done all I can
You see, I begged, stole, and I borrowed, yeah, ooh

 

That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning

 

Why in the world would anybody put chains on me, yeah?
I've paid my dues to make it
Everybody wants me to be
What they want me to be
I'm not happy when I try to fake it, no, ooh

I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
I was worrying 'bout the way the things might've been

You know that big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling, rolling yeah
Rolling on the river (the river)

Yeah, some days won't end ever and some days pass on by
I'll be working here forever, at least until I die
Damned if you do, damned if you don't
I'm supposed to get a raise next week, you know damn well I won't

I'm just working for a living
I'm working for a living
Working for a living, living and working
Taking what they giving 'cause I'm working for a living

No, I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrows
When I had you there but then I let you go
And now it's only fair that I should let you know
What you should know

 

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give any more
Can't live, if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give any more
