Lyrics
I was standing by the window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry my mother away
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord bye and bye
There's a better home a waiting

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 a waiting
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 that grave
Will the circle be unbroken

Bye and bye Lord bye and bye
There's a better home a waiting
In the sky Lord in the sky
I went back home that home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone
