Can the Circle Be Unbroken? cho: Can the circle be unbroken, By and by, Lord, bye and bye? There's a better home a-waiting In the sky, Lord, in the sky. I was standing by the window On one cold and cloudy day; And I saw the hearse come rolling For to carry my mother away. Lord, I told the undertaker, "Undertaker, please drive slow; For this body you are hauling, Lord, I hate to see her go" 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. Went back home, Lord, my home was lonesome Since my mother, she was gone; All my brothers, sisters crying What a home so sad and lone. Now my mother, she's crossed over Where so many have gone before. And I know, Lord, I will meet her Just waiting at glory's door. RG
