on one [D]cold and cloudy [A]day,
and I saw the hearse come rolling
for to [E]carry my mother [A]away.
Can the [A]circle be unbroken, bye and [D]bye, Lord, bye and [A]bye,
there's a better home a-waiting, in the [D]sky, Lord, in the [A]sky.
Lord, I told the undertaker,
undertaker, please drive slow,
for this body you are hauling,
Lord, I hate to see her go. + CHORUS
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. + CHORUS
Went back home, Lord, my home was lonesome,
missed my mother, she was gone.
All my brothers, sisters crying,
what a home so sad and lone. + CHORUS
