Various Artists – Can The Circle Be Unbroken lyrics

I was standing by the window
On one cold and cloudy day
And I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

Lord, I told the undertaker
"Undertaker, please drive slow
For this body you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go"

Can 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 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

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

Went back home Lord, my home was lonesome
Miss my mother she was gone
All my brothers sisters crying
What a home, so sad and lone

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky
