Neville Brothers – Will The Circle Be Unbroken lyrics

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse wheel rolling
It was taking my sister away

Said, undertaker, undertaker
Won't you please drive real slow?
That's my little baby sister
Not a soul came to see her go

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

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse wheel rolling
It was taking my mother away

Undertaker, undertaker
Won't you please drive real slow?
That's my mother, my dear old mother
I sure hate to see her go

Circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky lord, in the sky

Years have passed now
By the same old window
On the cold and cloudy day
When I see the hearse wheels rolling
They was taking Chief Jolly away

Undertaker, undertaker
Won't you please drive real slow?
That's Chief Jolly that you're carryin'
I sure hate to see him go
