    Lyrics

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

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    I said to the undertaker
    Undertaker please drive slow
    For this lady you are carrying
    Lord I hate to see her go

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    Oh, 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

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

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

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    We sang songs of childhood
    Hymns of faith that made us strong
    Ones that mother Maybelle taught us
    Hear the angels sing along

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky
