(Ada R. Habershon / Charles H. Gabriel, version of AP Carter)

I was standing by my window,
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
For to carry 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 went back home, home was lonely
For my mother, she was gone
All my family, they were crying
For our home felt sad and alone


Undertaker, undertaker, please drive slow
For that woman you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go
