Roy Acuff – Will The Circle Be Unbroken lyrics

I was standing by my window on a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling to carry 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
[ ac. Guitar ]
I said to the undertaker undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are hauling oh I hate to see her go
[ harmonica ]
I will follow close behind her try to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow when they laid her in her grave
[ fiddle ]
Went back home and home was lonesome since my mather she had gone
Found my brothers sisters crying what a home so sad and lone
Will the circle be unbroken...
