Detour

print

Headed down life’s crooked road
Lot of things I never knowd
Cause I didn’t know 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 is said Detour
Oh these bitter things I find
Should have read that Detour sign

When I’ve got to the place
Where it said “a-bout face”
I thought that all my worries were behind
But the farther I go
More sorrow I know
Should have read that Detour sign

When I’ve got stuck in the mud
All my hopes dropped with a thud
My life seemed to pass before my eyes
Got no will power to get
From the hole that I’m in yet
Should have read that Detour sign

Should have read that Detour sign
