I noticed some problems in other songs I sent into COWPIE. This is the right  
way. 
 
My bills are all due and the babies 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 ÊÊ 
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 
My brother said there ain't a thing I can do  
My wife and my kids are all down with the flu ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ 
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊAnd I was just thinking of calling on you I'm  
busted! 
 
Lord I'm no thief 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's gotta pack up and go 
Where I'll make a livin' the Lord only knows but I'm busted!
