My bills are all due and my baby need shoes but I'm busted
Cotton is down to a quater a pound and I'm busted
I've got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay
A big stack of bills that get bigger each day EE
The County will haul my belongings away I'm busted!
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
He's she said there ain't a thing I can do
My kids and my wife are all down with the flu
And I was just thinking of calling on you I'm busted!
