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 ???
