My bills are all due and the baby needs shoes, and I'm busted.
A                                            D
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound, but I'm busted.
D                               D7
I got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay,
a big stack of bills that gets bigger each day..
    A                                                 D
The county's gonna haul my belongings away, cause I'm busted.

D                                                   A     A7
I went to my brother to ask for a loan, cause I was busted.
A                                                   D
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,
    A                                                   D
and I was just thinking about calling on you, cause I'm busted.'

D                                                      A     A7
Well, I am no thief, but a man can go wrong, when he's busted.
A                                                    D
The food that we canned last summer is gone, and I'm busted.
D                               D7
The fields are all bare and the cotton won't grow,
me and my family got to pack up and go,
    A                                                      D
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.)

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
