: The expression 'over the hump' is used in southern part of USA to mean 'the hard part of the job is behind me'. When climbing a hill the going is tough, but after crossing over the hump (the top) the going is much easier now.

There was a song that I heard in the 1960s. I couldn't find the author/singer.
