Supper time
I should set the table
'Cause it's supper time
Somehow I'm not able

'Cause that man o'mine
Ain't comin' home no more

Ain't comin' home no more?

How'll I keep explainin' when they ask me where he's gone?
How'll I keep from cryin' when I bring their supper on?
How can I remind them to pray at their humble board?
How can I be thankful when they start to thank the Lord?

Lord!
Supper time
I should set the table
'Cause it's supper time

Somehow I'm not able
'Cause that man o'mine
Ain't comin' home no more
