Carter Family (they sing Can The Circle)


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


Will the circle be unbroken by and by lord by and by

There's a better home a waiting in the sky in the sky



Lord I told the undertaker undertaker please drive slow

For this body you are hauling lord I hate to see her go


Will the circle...


I followed close behind her try to hold up and be brave

But I could not hide my sorrow when they laid her in the grave


Will the circle...



Went back home lord my home was lonesome yes my mother she was gone

All my brothers sister crying what a home so sad and low (lone?)


Will the circle...
