I'M NOT BROKE, BUT I'M BADLY BENT
(Martha Ellis)
LATTIE MOORE (KING 1228, 1953)

Well, I'm going back to the country
'Cause I can't pay my rent
Well, I'm not completely broke
Brother, I'm badly bent
Can't understand where my money went
Well, I'm not broke, but I'm badly bent

They warned me 'bout the city
About the city life
But I thought I knew everything
I took no one's advice
And I wonder where my money went
Well, I'm not broke, but I'm badly bent

When I get back to the country
I'll be living in a tent
'Cause my ma and pa are gonna be mad
About the money I have spent
Can't understand where my money went
Well, I'm not broke, but I'm badly bent

Well, I had plenty of money
When to the city went
I met too many pretty gals
And now my money's spent
And now I know where my money went
Well, I'm not broke, but I'm badly bent
