About When Mama Dies.... Precious Old Country Song





Lyrics "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" sung by Roy Acuff

Will The Circle (Be Unbroken)   (sample of MP3 download)


I was standing by my window,
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry mother away

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

I said to that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go

I will follow close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in her grave

Went back home, my home was lonesome
Since my mother, she had gone
Found 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 a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
