mike.mcgrath@virgin.net Origins: Will the Circle Be Unbroken (71* d) Lyr Add: CAN THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN?^^^ 12 Nov 98


Hi Steve
If these are the words to your song, I should be able to get the chords for you. Let me know.

Mike

CAN THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN?

CHORUS: Can 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 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.

This is the version in the Digital Tradition
