lyrics

Will the Circle Be Unbroken
Written by AP Carter, Charles Gabriel, Ada R Habershon

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

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord by and by
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord in the sky

Undertaker, Undertaker
Won’t you please drive real slow
That’s my mother, my dear mother
I sure 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 her grave

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