My bills are all due and the baby needs shoes
And Im busted
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound
But Im busted
I got a cow that went dry and a hen that wont lay
A big stack of bills that gets bigger each day
The countys gonna haul my belongings away
cause Im 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 Im busted
My brother said there aint a thing I can do
My wife and my kids are all down with the flu
And I was just thinking about callin on you
And Im busted.

Well I am no thief but a man can go wrong
When hes busted
The food that we packed that last summer is gone
And Im busted
The fields are all bare and the cotton wont grow
Me and my famly got to pack up and go
But Ill make a living just where I dont know
cause Im busted.
