Will The Circle Be Unbroken
A.P. Carter
I was standing by my window -on one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that 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 a waiting - in the sky, Lord, in the sky

I said to that undertaker - undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are carrying - Lord, I hate to see her go


Oh 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 back home, my home was lonesome - missed my mother she was gone
All of my brothers, sisters crying - what a home so sad and lone


We sang the songs of childhood - Hymns of faith that made us strong
Ones that Mother Maybelle taught us -Hear the angels sing along
