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 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 When I got stuck in the mud All my hopes dropped with a thud I guess that my heart strings are made of twine Have no willpower 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, oh these bitter things I find Should have read that detour sign Should have read that detour sign Should have read that detour sign
