Sometimes I gets to weepin’
It ain’t always cuz I feel bad
Life genrelly doan treat me that awful

And you wanna say Wait! Just Wait a damn minute!
You lift yoah arms up, Yell some But it doan wait, it doan even slow down,
Even goes a little faster if you look close.
Nothin a body can do. Cept wait for a bright spot later in the day.
But it does set you to weepin’ sometimes
