Now I've got heartaches by the number troubles by the score
Every day you love me less each day I love you more
Yes I've got heartaches by the number a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting that's the day my world will end.

Busted
(Harlan Howard)

The bills are all due and the babies need shoes but I'm busted
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound but I'm busted
Got a cow that's gone 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 I'm busted I'm busted.

Pick Me Up On Your Way Down
(Harlan Howard)

Pick me up on your way down when you're blue and all alone
When their glamour starts to bore you come on back where you belong
You may be their pride and joy but they'll find another toy
Then they'll take away your crown pick me up on your way down.

I've Got a Tiger By the Tail
(Harlan Howard - Buck Owens)

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
Well I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losin' weight and turnin' mighty pale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

Yeah, it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail...
