Busted

Busted

George Jones

My bills are all due and the babies need shoes,
But I'm Busted
Cotton's gone down to a quarter a pound
And I'm Busted

I got a cow that's gone dry
And a hen that won't lay
A big stack of bills
Getting bigger each day

The county's gonna haul my belongings away,
But I'm Busted
So I called on my brother to ask for a loan
'Cause I was Busted

I hate to beg like a dog for a bone,
But I'm Busted
My brother said, "there's not a thing I can do,
My wife and my kids

Are all down with the flu
And I was just thinkin' about callin' on you,
'Cause I'M Busted."
Lord, I ain't no thief, but a man can go wrong,

When he's Busted
The food that we canned last summer is gone,
But I'm Busted
Now the fields are all bare

And the cotton won't grow
Me and my family's gotta pack up and go
But I'll make a living, just where, I don't know
'Cause I'm Busted
