I was standing by my window
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away.

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky.

Well, I told the undertaker
Undertaker, please drive slow
For this body you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go.

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In 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 her grave.

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky...
