Will the Circle Be Unbroken

Family's mother dies.
They're all sad, but happy that
She's gone to heaven.

"Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is a popular folk song from the Carter Family. It appears on the 11th volume of the Bootleg Series, which is a collection of the 1967 Basement Tapes recordings with the Band.

I was standing at my window
one cold and cloudy day
and I saw the hearse come rolling
for to take 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 lord, in the sky.

I followed close behind her,
tried to hold up and be brave.
But I could not hide my sorrow
when they lowered her in her grave.

Will 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.
