In the style of

John Conlee


my bills are all due
and the babies
need shoes
but i'm busted

cotton is 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
that get
bigger each day
the county's
gonna haul my
belongings away
'cause i'm busted

i called on
my brother
to ask for a loan
'cause i was busted
lord i hate to beg
like a dog for 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'
'bout callin' on you
'cause i'm busted

lord i'm no thief
but a man
can go wrong
when he's busted

the food
that we canned
last summer is gone
we're busted

the fields are all bare
and the cotton
won't grow
me and my family has
gotta pack up and go

but i'll make a livin'
just where
i don't know
'cause i'm busted
i'm broke
