Everything Is Broken
by R.L. Burnside

From "Tangled Up in Blues: Songs of Bob Dylan," an album of Bob Dylan songs performed by various blues and soul artists, "Everything Is Broken" performed by American blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist R.L. Burnside. The song was originally included on Dylan's 1989 album "Oh Mercy." Notable cover versions include Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Betty Lavette.

This version was also included on the 2002 soundtrack to the movie "Big Bad Love."

"Broken lines, broken strings,
Broken threads, broken springs,
Broken idols, broken heads,
People sleeping in broken beds
Ain't no use jiving
Ain't no use joking
Everything is broken

Broken bottles, broken plates,
Broken switches, broken gates,
Broken dishes, broken parts,
Streets are filled with broken hearts
Broken words never meant to be spoken,
Everything is broken

Seem like every time you stop and turn around
Something else just hit the ground

Broken cutters, broken saws,
Broken buckles, broken laws,
Broken bodies, broken bones,
Broken voices on broken phones
Take a deep breath, feel like you're chokin',
Everything is broken

Every time you leave and go off someplace
Things fall to pieces in my face

Broken hands on broken ploughs,
Broken treaties, broken vows,
Broken pipes, broken tools,
People bending broken rules
Hound dog howling, bull frog croaking,
Everything is broken"
