"My Give a Damn's Busted" is a song written by American country music artist Joe Diffie along with Tom Shapiro and Tony Martin. Diffie originally recorded the song on his 2001 album In Another World.[1] The song was later recorded by Jo Dee Messina on her album Delicious Surprise. Released on January 3, 2005, Messina's version spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts that year, and her first chart single since "I Wish" in late 2003 – early 2004. Canadian country music singer Michelle Wright included her version of the song on her 2006 album Everything and More.
