Will The Circle Be Unbroken

I was standing by my window
on one cold and cloudy day
when I saw that hearse come rolling
for to carry my mother away

Lord I told that undertaker
undertaker please drive slow
for this body you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go

I will follow close behind her
try to hold up and be brave
but I could not hide my sorrow
when they laid her in her grave

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and Bye Lord Bye and Bye
There's a better Home Awaiting
in the sky Lord in the sky

The early recording of the Carter family - Maybelle with cousin Sara and Sara's husband A.P. launched a musical revolution. as Don Everly told Life magazine "the Carter Family took country music from the front porch to the radio. Maybelle's then-revolutionary guitar style helped transform the instrument from back ground rhythm to the dominant lead sound in pop culture, "wrote the authors of finding her voice the saga of women in country music, "Sara and Maybelle were essentially a duet with occasional bass vocals from A.P. and were thus the foundation female act of country music history. On Oct 23, 1978 long praised as one of America's living musical treasures,Maybelle passed on at the age of 69 of respiratory complications and Parkinson's disease.
