Will the Circle Be Unbroken Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry mother away
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
I said to the undertaker
"Undertaker, please drive slow
For this lady, you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go"
Verse 4
I will follow close behind her
Try to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in her grave
Verse 5
Went back home and home was lonesome
Since my mother, she had gone
Found my brothers, sisters crying
What a home so sad and lone
Verse 6
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
