Busted Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: At Folsom Prison

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

damn' right i am...
And I bet up to 2010,
even more people would be.
But we will always have songs like this to sing all along the way.
thx Johnny

I'm 78 and have been busted for two years because of a defective artificial hip made by Johnson & Johnson. but, I keep my spirits up by singing songs like this as a volunteer at nursing homes. Johnny Cash was a quiet musical genius, whose songs touch the hearts of all kinds of people - from prison inmates to preachers to everyday folks of all ages.
