Ralph Stanley Lyrics Will The Circle Be Unbroken

Song name Will The Circle Be Unbroken
Artist Ralph Stanley
Album “Songs My Mother Taught Me and More”

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the 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 awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

Lord, I told that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow

For this body you’re haulin’
Lord, I hate to see here go

Will 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 that grave

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

I went back home Lord, my home was lonesome
Searched 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 awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky
In the sky Lord, in the sky
