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

So I told the undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For that lady that you are haulin'
Oh I hate to see here go

Tell me will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home there waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken
(Will the circle be unbroken)
By and by, lord, by and by
(By and by, lord, by and by)
There's a better home a-waiting
(There's a better home a-waiting)
In the sky, lord, in the sky
(In the sky, lord, in the sky)

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

Will the circle be unbroken
(Will the circle be unbroken)
(By and by, lord, by and by)
(There's a better home a-waiting)
(In the sky, lord, in the sky)

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

Say will that circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Oh will the circle be unbroken
(Will the circle be unbroken)
By and by, lord, by and by
(By and by, lord, by and by)
There's a better home a-waiting
(There's a better home a-waiting)
In the sky, lord, in the sky
(In the sky, lord, in the sky)

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home there waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Say now will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky
