Detour
Headed down life's crooked road
Lots of things I never know'd
And because of me not knowin', I now pine

Trouble got in the trail
Spent the next five years in jail
Should have read that detour sign

Detour, there's a muddy road ahead
Detour, paid no mind to what it said
Detour, all these bitter things I find
Should have read that detour sign

When I got right to the place
Where it said about face
I thought all my worries were behind

But the further I go
The more sorrow I know
Should have read that detour sign

Detour, there's a muddy road ahead
Detour, paid no mind to what it said
Detour, all these bitter things I find
Should have read that detour sign

When I got stuck in the mud
All my hopes dropped with a thud
I reckon my heart-strings are made of twine

I got no will power to get
From the hole that I'm in yet
Should have read that detour sign

Detour, there's a muddy road ahead
Detour, paid no mind to what it said
Detour, all these bitter things I find
Should have read, Lord
Should have read that detour sign
