    Lyrics

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

    'Cause that man of mine
    Ain't coming home no more
    Oh, supper time
    Kids will soon be yelling

    For this supper time
    While I keep from telling
    That that man of mine
    Ain't coming home no more

    While I keep explaining
    When they ask me where he's gone
    While I keep from crying
    When I bring the 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,

    Oh, lord!
    Supper time,
    I should set the table
    'Cause it's supper time

    Somehow I'm not able
    'Cause that man of mine
    Ain't coming home no more
    Ain't coming home no more
