Joan Baez

Will the circle be unbroken?

I was standing by the window, 
on a cold and cloudy day, 
when I saw the hearse come rolling 
to carry my mother away

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

Lord, I told that undertaker: 
Undertaker please drive slow 
For that body you're a hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go 

Well, I followed close behind her 
Tried to hold up and be brave 
But I could not hide my sorrow 
when they laid her in that grave. 

I went back home, Lord, that home was lonesome 
Since my mother, she was gone 
All my brothers and sisters crying 
What a home so sad and alone.

One by one the seats were emptied
One by one they went away
Now that family they are parted
Will they meet again some day.

I was singing with my sisters
I was singing with my friends
And we all can, sing together
'cause the circle never ends
