OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I was standing by my window
On one cold and cloudy day

Left allemande the corner,
Turn the partner by the right
Left allemande, weave the ring
Will the circle be unbroken
Swing the girl and promenade
I've got a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around the ring
Walk into the middle and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel around that floor, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, go right & left thru
Pass to the center, square thru 3/4 round the ring
Swing that corner girl, promenade
I've got a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will The Circle Be Unbroken Lyrics ID: 532

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.
