Lyrics
You painted me a picture of Peace and Sunshine true.
You saw the sun shine brightly in everyone you knew.
In colours soft and bright,
I basked in your delight,
Never thinking we would ever have to bid adieu.

The rain has come; the sun is gone; my heart’s in turmoil, too.
Oh, curse the pall! You gave us all your Peace and Sunshine true.
And I can hear these words
Echo from a song I heard:
“This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.”

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my Sunshine away

Chorus:
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord bye and bye
There's a better home a waiting
In the sky Lord in the sky

Lord I told that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For that body that you’re carryin’
Well, I hate to see her go

Well I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in her grave.

Repeat Chorus
 
I went back home, Lord, that home was lonesome
Since my Sunshine and Peace was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone.

So I'll sing it with my brothers and sisters
Yes, I will sing it with my friends
And we all can, sing together
‘cause the circle never ends

Chorus:
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord bye and bye
There's a better home a waiting
In the sky Lord in the sky
