This was played in a jam with the Allman Brothers on 10 May 1970. There are also tapes of Garcia playing it with Nelson in 1962, and with Taj Mahal and Maria Muldaur on 20 April 1974. This is the version with Taj Mahal:

Lyrics

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

Well I went home, one day, I found my home was empty
Now my mother she had gone
And my brothers and sisters were crying
Oh you know their home was so all alone

Undertaker, oh undertaker
Please drive slow, oh please drive slow
'Cause you know that body you are hauling
Oh I hate to see it go
