Will The Circle Be Unbroken

print

I was standing by the window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry my mother away

   Will the circle be unbroken
   Bye and bye Lord bye and bye
   There’s a better home a waiting
   In the sky Lord in the sky

I said to the undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For that body you are carrying
Lord I hate to see her go

Well I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in that grave

I went back home Lord that home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone
