      A              A7
I was standing by my window
       D               A
On one cold and cloudy day
       A                    A    F#m   
When I saw that hearse come rolling 
    A           E       A
For to carry my mother away 

         A            A7 
Will the circle be unbroken 
       D                A
By and by, Lord, by and by 
          A                  F#m
There's a better home a-waiting 
       A          E      A
In the sky, Lord, in the sky 

I said to that undertaker 
undertaker please drive slow 
for this lady you are carrying 
Lord, I hate to see here go 


Banjo/Guitar Solo 

Oh, 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 


I went back home, my home was lonesome 
missed my mother, she was gone 
all of my brothers, sisters crying 
what a home so sad and lone 


Fiddle/Dobro Solo

We sang the songs of childhood 
Hymns of faith that made us strong 
Ones that Mother Maybelle taught us 
Hear the angels sing along 


Chorus (end on D over sky on this one)
