Will the Cirlce Be Unbroken
by Johnny Cash



i was standing, by my window.
on a cold and cloudy day.
when i saw that , Hurst come rolling.
for to carry my mother away,

will the circle be unbroken
bye and bye lord bye and bye
there's a better home awaiting
in the sky lord in the sky

and i told that under taker
undertaker please drive slow
for that body that your hauling
for i hate to her go

will the circle be unbroken
bye and bye lord bye and bye
there's a better home awaiting
in the sky lord in the sky

and i followed close behind her
tried to hold up and be brave
but i could not hide my sorrow
as they laid her in the grave

will the circle be unbroken
bye and bye lord bye and bye
theres a better home awaiting
in the sky lord in the sky

i went home
my home was lonesome
now that she was dead and gone
all my brothers, sisters crying
what a home so sad and alone

will the circle be unbroken
bye and bye lord bye and bye
theres a better home awaiting
in the sky lord in the sky
