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

    I went to my brother to ask for a loan 'cause I was busted
    I hate to beg like a dog without his 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,
    And I was just thinking about calling on you, 'cause I'm busted."

    Well, I am 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 got to pack up and go,
    But I'll make a living, just where I don't know 'cause I'm busted.

    I'm broke, no bread, I mean like nothing,
    (I B Emerson)
