Lyrics
I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rollin'
For to take my mother away

I told the undertaker
"Undertaker, please drive slow
'Cause that lady that you are haulin'
Oh, I hate to see her go"

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

So, I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hold my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Oh, tell me when the circle be unbroken?
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Tell me, when the circle be unbroken?
Oh, by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

When the circle be unbroken?
By and by, Lord, by and by
Oh there's a better home away
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
