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

I went to my brother to ask for a loan 'cause I'm (G) Busted,
I hate to beg like a dog for a bone, but I'm (C) Busted,
My brother said there ain't a thing I can do,
My (F) wife and my kids are all down with the flu
And (G) I was just thinkin' about callin' on you,
'cause I'm (C) Busted,

I am no thief, but a man can go wrong when he's (G) Busted,
The food that we canned last summer is gone, and I'm (C) Busted,
The fields are all bare and the cotton won't grow,
(F) Me and my family 's got to pack up and go,
But (G) I'll make a living, just where I don't know,
and I'm (C) Busted.
