my lyricsbox
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
This song is from the album "Have I Stayed Away Too Long".
