I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
Going to carry my mother away
And so I told the undertaker,
Undertaker please drive slow
For that lady that you’re a carryin’
Oh, I hate to see her go

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home a’waiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

So, I followed close behind her,
I tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow,
When they laid her in the grave
I went back home, my home was lonesome,
Missed my mother she was gone.
All my brothers and sisters crying
In our home so sad and alone.

Oh, we sang the songs of our childhood
Hymns of faith that made us strong,
The ones that mother Maybelle taught us
Hear the angels sing along

Chorus: 2X … tag last line
