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.
