Busted  Ray Charles

Busted:Ray Charles.

(Capo 1st fret.)

[D]My bills are all due and the baby needs shoes, and I'm [A]busted.[A7]
[A]Cotton is down to a quarter a pound, but I'm [D]busted.
[D]I got a cow that went dry and a [D7]hen that won't lay,
a [G]big stack of bills that gets bigger each day..
The [A]county's gonna haul my belongings away, cause I'm [D]busted.

[D]I went to my brother to ask for a loan, cause I was [A]busted[A7].
[A]I hate to beg, like a dog without his bone, but I'm [D]busted.
[D]My brother said, 'There ain't a thing I can do,
my [G]wife and my kids are all down with the flu,
and [A]I was just thinking about calling on you, cause I'm [D]busted.'

[D]Well, I am no thief, but a man can go wrong, when he's [A]busted[A7].
[A]The food that we canned last summer is gone, and I'm [D]busted.
[D]The fields are all bare and the [D7]cotton won't grow,
[G]me and my family got to pack up and go,
but [A]I'll make a living, just where I don't know, cause I'm [D]busted.
[D]I'm broke, no bread, I mean like nothing...(Fade.)
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
