Will the Circle Be Unbroken?

Originally performed by Traditional

(Traditional)

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 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 won't you please drive slow
For this lady you are carrying
Lord I hate to see her go

(Traditional)

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 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

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

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

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
