Will the circle be unbroken
Update 2002-07-19

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, bye and bye
    There's a better home a-waiting
    In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Lord, I told that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For this body that you're hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go

 * Refrain

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

 * Refrain

I went home, my home was lonely
Now my mother she has gone
All my brothers, sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone

 * Refrain
