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

Supper time, kids will soon be yellin'
For their supper time
How'll I keep from tellin'
Them that man o' mine
Ain't comin' home, no more?

How'll I keep explainin'
When they ask me
Where, 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
Ain't comin' home, no more
