Will the Circle be Unbroken
recorded by George Jones
written by A.P. Carter

I was standing by my window
C7     F               C
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
                G7      C
For to carry my mother away
Will that circle be unbroken
C7     F              C
By and by Lord by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
                G7     C
In the sky Lord in the sky
I went back home  my home was lonely
C7     F              C
For my mother she was gone
All my brothers sister's crying
               G7        C
For the home so sad and alone
Undertaker  please undertaker
C7   F                  C
Undertaker please drive slow
For that body you are hauling
               G7      C
Lord I hate to see her go
Will that circle be unbroken
C7     F                C
By and by  Lord  by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
                  G7     C
In the sky  Lord  in the sky
repeat #2

Print Will the Circle Be Unbroken lyrics and chords, the lyrics are very sad and a bit morbid, but the melody is very pretty. Eddy Arnold has another version that's very nice.
