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

(chorus)
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

(break)

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

chorus

(break)

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 her grave

chorus

(break)

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

chorus

Songwriters
