CAN THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN

 

I was standing at my window
One dark and stormy day,
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry my mother away.

Chorus: 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.

Undertaker, undertaker,
Undertaker, please drive slow,
For the lady you are hauling--
Lord, I hate to see her go.

(Chorus)

I will follow close behind her,
Try to cheer up and be brave,
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they rolled her in the grave.

(Chorus)

Then my brother and my sister,
Since Mother, she has gone.
As brother, sister crying,
For that lonely home so alone.

(Chorus)
