Busted Lyrics - Ray Charles

Review The Song (2)



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 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 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, forget it, over.

Cell Block | Reviewer: Ted P | 11/9/12

As a young Marine I came home from Vietnam and worked the cell block,as a guard at the USNDC in Portsmouth N.H...The inmates got along pretty well with me because I loved soul music...They used to call me "SGT (Tom)"Ray Charles "Jones"...I used to walk the cell block and sing "Busted" by none other then "Ray Charles"...Great singer and song man...

We Get It! | Reviewer: Maura | 12/24/04

Everyone can relate to this song. Blues about being broke..... It's fun to sing and always gets a great audience response.
