Kristin Hersh – Can The Circle Be Unbroken lyrics

(one, two)

I was standing
By the window
On a dark and cloudy day
When I saw the
Hearse come rolling
For to take 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 the body you are taking
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

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting...
