Headed down life's crooked road lot of things I never knowed
And because of me not knowin' I now fine
Trouble got right on my trail I'll 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 the bitter things I find
Should have read that detour sign

I got stuck in the mud, all my hopes dropped with a thud
And I thought that my heart strings were made of twine
But the father I go the more sorrow when 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, the bitter things I find
Should have read that detour sign
Should have read that detour sign
Should have read that detour sign
