  • Headed down life's crooked road, lots of things I never knowed
    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, oh 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 that all my worries were behind
    But the farther 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, oh these bitter things I find
    Should have read that detour sign
    Let's go

    When I got stuck in the mud all my hopes dropped with a thud
    I guess that my heart strings were made of twine
    No willpower to get from the hole 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, oh these bitter things I find
    Should have read that detour sign

    Should have read that detour sign
    Should have read that detour sign Writer/s: PAUL WESTMORELAND
