    Lyrics

    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
