(Capo 1st fret.)
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, cause 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…(Fade.)
