Lyrics

Busted Flat

Written By: Al Parsons & Kenny Jones

Verse 1
With two dollars in my pocket
A thousand bucks to pay
Don’t know how I’ll make tomorrow
Or if I can face the day
It’s a good life some will tell you
But the hard times seem to stay
If I don’t pay the rent tomorrow
I best be on my way

Chorus
Yea I’m busted
Broke down to the bone
This hard workin' life ain’t workin’
Busted flat and all alone

Verse 2
Found a job just south of Pittsburg
Haulin’ steel to Idaho
I was doin' good till I met Rita
Somewhere between loads
Her blue eyes made me drop my guard
Forget the fool I’d been
I quit that job and now she's gone
I’m never gonna win

Chorus
Yea I’m busted
Broke down to the bone
This hard workin' life ain’t workin'
Busted flat and all alone

Bridge
Where I come from you help yourself
But lord it’s getting hard
Tryin' to make the ends meet
Is tearin' me apart
Taxes goin' up
Pay keeps goin' down
I guess I’m gonna work until they put me in the ground

Chorus
Yea I’m busted
Broke down to the bone
This hard workin' life ain’t workin'
Busted flat and all alone

Verse 3
Someday I’ll get the message
Figure out where I done wrong
Until that day I’ll look for work
As sure as the day’s long
If you can find an answer
For that I’ll gladly pay
Don’t send it to me COD
I’ll send a check one day

Chorus
Right now I’m busted
Broke down to the bone
This hard workin' life ain’t workin’
Busted flat and all alone
Busted flat and all alone
