Suppertime lyrics

Supper time
I should set the table
cause its supper time
Somehow Im not able
cause that man omine
Aint comin home no more

Supper time
Kids will soon be yellin
For their supper time
Howll I keep from tellin
Them that man omine
Aint comin home no more?

Howll I keep explainin when they ask me where hes gone?
Howll 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 its supper time
Somehow Im not able
cause that man omine
Aint comin home no more
