OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies promenade along the inside
You get and swing the girl around
Hey, join hands circle go left around the ring
Allemande left and weave the ring around
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye; bye and bye
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around
Come down the middle and do the right & left thru
The sides square thru four hands around
You meet those two and do the right & left thru
Swing thru and then, swing thru again
Boy run to the right and promenade
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky


TAG

How I want to be in that number
In the sky; in the sky

Will The Circle Be Unbroken
 
 

I was standin' by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rollin'
And it took my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky Lord, in the sky

Lord, I told that undertaker
"Undertaker please drive slow
For that lady that your takin'
Lord, I hate to see her go"

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by
There's a better home awaitin'
In the sky Lord, in the sky

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
By and by, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

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

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by



Original lyrics:

There are loved ones in the glory
Whose dear forms you often miss.
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?

CHORUS:

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

In the joyous days of childhood
Oft they told of wondrous love
Pointed to the dying Savior;
Now they dwell with Him above.

(Chorus)

You remember songs of heaven
Which you sang with childish voice.
Do you love the hymns they taught you,
Or are songs of earth your choice?

(Chorus)

You can picture happy gath'rings
Round the fireside long ago,
And you think of tearful partings
When they left you here below.

(Chorus)

One by one their seats were emptied.
One by one they went away.
Now the family is parted.
Will it be complete one day?

(Chorus)

Composed by Charles H. Gabriel.
Lyrics by Ada R. Habershon.
Recorded by Arlo Guthrie; many others.
