Tabbed by: Brandon Howell
Email: Bhowell0099@charter.net

My first tab EVER and it is great!!!

CHORUS

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord by and by.
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky lord by and by.

VERSE 1

      A
I was standing by my window
      D               A
On a cold and cloudy day.
                            F#
When i saw that hearse come rollin
         A       E      A
For to carry my mother away.

CHORUS

     A
Will the circle be unbroken
     D               A
By and by Lord by and by.
                     F#
There's a better home awaiting
     A         E       A
In the sky lord by and by.

VERSE 2

     A
I said to that, undertaker
     D                A
Undertaker please drive slow.
                      F#
For this lady you are carrying
     A        E       A  
Lord I hate to see her go.

CHORUS

     A
Will the circle be unbroken
     D               A
By and by Lord by and by.
                     F#
There's a better home awaiting
     A         E       A
In the sky lord by and by.

VERSE 3

     A
Oh I followed close behind her
     D                A
Tried to hold up and be brave.
                      F#
But I could not hide my sorrow
     A         E         A
When they laid her in the grave.

CHORUS

     A
Will the circle be unbroken
     D               A
By and by Lord by and by.
                     F#
There's a better home awaiting
     A         E       A
In the sky lord by and by.

VERSE 4

     A
I went back home, my home was lonesome
     D                A
Miss my mother she was gone.
                          F#
All my brothers, and sisters crying
     A          E       A
What a home so sad and lone.

CHORUS

     A
Will the circle be unbroken
     D               A
By and by Lord by and by.
                     F#
There's a better home awaiting
     A         E       A
In the sky lord by and by.

VERSE

     A
We sang the songs of childhood.
     D                  A
Hymns of faith that made us strong.
                          F#
Ones that Mother Maybelle taught us
     A        E       A
And the angels sang along.

CHORUS 2x

     A
Will the circle be unbroken
     D               A
By and by Lord by and by.
                     F#
There's a better home awaiting
     A         E       A
In the sky lord by and by.

if your going by the actual song: the d should actually be c# and it doesnt switch where you say it does, and there are a few chord changes you missed, throughout the song its basically a, c#, a, c#, a, e, f#, a, e, a (fast strumming and switching)

the vocals do this:

(standard tuning, no capo)
