Hurting Once Again

Lord, you know that I've been hurting.
Momma says it's growing pains.
Oh, you know that I've been hurting
Momma says it's growing pains.
Here I am a hurting, yes I'm hurting once again.

Well, I've been down to the river; 
Lord, I went down there feeling fine.
Yes, I went down to the river; 
Lawd, I went down there feeling fine.
But before I knew it, I was sitting there a crying.

Momma. said,"It just ain't easy.
Life's not always what it seems.
Momma said, "It just ain't easy.
Life's not always what it seems.
She said, 'You're just a poor girl with some crazy, mixed-up dreams'.'

    Speechless, u just said it all right there, growing pains. Totally love the way you emphasized the important staff ( repeating them twice)...and the second verse: Lord, I went down there feeling fine. Yes, I went down to the river; Lawd, I went down there feeling fine.# killer ???
