Will The Circle Be Unbroken

Will The Circle Be Unbroken

Ramblin' Jack Elliott

I was standing by my window on one cold and cloudy day.
Was I saw that herst come rolling for to take my mother away.

undertaker under taker undertaker please drive slow
Because the body that you are carrying lord I hate to see her go.

will the circle be unbroken by and by lord by and by.
Ther's abetter home awaiting is the sky lord in the sky

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

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 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

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

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

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

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
