|An old hymn made popular by various artists which continues to be a favourite in bluegrass and folk sessions today. The singer witnesses his/her mother being carried off for burial. Her example is praised. The singer wonders if they will meet again: "Will the circle be unbroken, By and by, Lord, by and by? There's a better home a-waiting In the sky, Lord, in the sky."|
Chorus Will the circle be unbroken, By and bye Lord bye and bye There's a better home a-waiting, In the sky lord in the sky.
I was standing by my window, On a cold and windy day When I saw that hearse come rolling, For to carry my mother away. Lord, I told that undertaker, Undertaker please drive slow For this body that you're hauling, Lord, I hate to see her go. 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. I went home, my home was lonely, Now my mother she has gone All my brothers, sisters crying, What a home so sad and alone.
