     I've never heard yet o' anybuddy gettin' hunch-back frum carrin' other peoples troubles on thar shoulders.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     One way a woman can make a goat out of her husband is to buy a goat skin coat on the installment plan, said Job Fodder the other day.
     I've never heard of anyone getting hunch-back from carrying other peoples troubles on their shoulders.
