      About "Busted"

      Lyrics for Patty Loveless - "Busted"

      Well, the bills are all due and the babies needs shoes, we're busted
      We've had a hard time since they closed down the mines, we're busted
      Got a cow that's gone dry and a hen that won't lay
      A big stack of bills that get bigger each day
      Tomorrow they'll haul our belongings away, we're busted

      Well, our friends are all leavin' this ol' mining town, we're busted
      They're headin' up north where there's work to be found and trusted
      Lord, I hate to give up this acre of land
      It's been in the family since minin' began
      But babies get hungry, they don't understand we're busted
      We're busted, yes, we're busted
      We're headin' up north and we ain't coming back, we're busted

      I called brother John, thought I'd ask for a loan, we was busted
      Lord, I had to beg like a dog for a bone, but we're busted
      Brother John lost his job and his rent's overdue
      His wife and his kids are all down with the flu
      He said, "I was thinkin' of callin' on you, I'm busted"

      Lord no, my old man's no thief, but a good man turns bad when he's busted
      My babies ain't well and it's drivin' me mad 'cause we're busted
      Gonna sell that ol' Guernsey and give up this shack
      Come on now children, help mama get packed

      We're headin' up north and we ain't comin' back, we're busted
      We're busted, yes we're busted
      We're headin' up north and we ain't coming back, we're busted
