OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies promenade go once inside the ring
Come on back and swing your man around and around
Join your hands, circle left go movin' round you bet
Left allemande the corner, weave around the set
Detour, there's a muddy road ahead
Detour, I paid no mind to what it said
Detour, all the bitter things I'd find
Should have read that detour sign


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around will do
Dosado and you make that ocean wave
Girls trade, swing thru, boy run right you do
Couples circulate and ferris wheel
Centers pass thru, star thru
Reverse flutter wheel there man, promenade 'em hand-in-hand
Detour, all the bitter things I'd find
Should have read that detour sign

Detour (There's A Muddy Road Ahead)
 
 

Headed down life's crooked road
Lots of things I never knowed
And because of me not knowin', I now pine
Trouble got in the trail
Spent the next five years in jail
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda 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
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

When I got stuck in the mud
All my hopes dropped with a thud
I guess my heartstrings are made of twine
Got no willpower to get
From the hole that I'm in yet
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Lyrics by Paul Westmoreland.
Recorded by Jimmy Walker with Paul Westmoreland and His Pecos River Boys; Spade Cooley; Elton Britt; Patti Page.
