"Busted" as written by and Harlan Howard....
Well 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 and I'm busted
Now I went to my brother to ask for a loan cause I was busted
I hate to beg like a dog without 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

And I was just thinkin' about calling on you and 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's gotta pack up and go
But I'll make a living just where I don't know cause I'm busted
Lord I'm broke ain't got no biscuits in this house
