I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw he hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away
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 went back home, home was lonely
For my mother she was gone
And all my family there was cryin'
For our home felt sad and alone
Will the circle be unbroken
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
Undertaker, undertaker, undertaker
Won't you please drive slow?
For that lady you are haulin'
Lord, I hate to see her go
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
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
