"Will the Circle Be Unbroken" as written by and A.p. Carter....
Well, I was standing by my window
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Ohh, 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

Hey, undertaker
Hey, undertaker, undertaker, please drive slow
For that body you are haulin'
Lord, I hate, I hate to see her go

Ohh, 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 went back home, my home was lonesome
Missed my mother, she was gone
All my brothers, sisters crying
In our home so sad and alone

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

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 the grave

Ohh, 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

Ohh, 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

In the sky, Lord, in the sky
