Joan Baez – Will The Circle Be Unbroken lyrics

I was standing by the window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye 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 that body you're a haulin'
Lord I hate to see her go

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

I went back home Lord that home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone.

One by one the seats were emptied
One by one they went away
Now that family they are parted
Will they meet again some day.

I was singing with my sisters
I was singing with my friends
And we all can, sing together
'cause the circle never ends
