Song Lyrics

My bills are all due and the baby needs shoes and I`m busted

Cotton is down to a quarter a pound, but I`m busted

I got a cow that went dry and a hen that won`t lay

A big stack of bills that gets bigger each day

The county`s gonna haul my belongings away cause I`m busted.

I went to my brother to ask for a loan cause I was busted

I hate to beg like a dog without his bone, but I`m busted

My brother said there ain`t a thing I can do,

My wife and my kids are all down with the flu,

And I was just thinking about calling on you and I`m busted.

Well, I am no thief, but a man can go wrong when he`s busted

The food that we canned last summer is gone and I`m busted

The fields are all bare and the cotton won`t grow,

Me and my family got to pack up and go,

But I`ll make a living, just where I don`t know cause I`m busted.

I`m broke, no bread, I mean like nothing, forget it, over.
