My bills are all do and the babies need shoes but I'm Busted  
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound and I'm Busted  
I got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay  
A big stack of bills that get bigger each day  
    D                                       G       C G D G C G D   
The county will haul my belongin's away I'm Busted.  
  G                                          D  
I went to my brother to ask for a loan I was Busted  
I hate to beg like a dog for a 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  
    D                                         G      C G D G C G D  
And I was just thinkin' of callin' on you I'm Busted.  
G                                                  D  
Lord I'm no theif 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 gotta pack up and go  
      D                                              G    C G D G C G D  
Where I'll make a livin' the Lord only knows but I'm Busted.
