      About "Detour"

      Lyrics for Jerry Jeff Walker - "Detour"

      Travelin' down life's crooked road,
      Lots of things there I never knowed
      Because of me not knowin' now I pine,
      Trouble got on my trail
      I spent the next five years in jail,
      Should have read that detour sign

      [Chorus]
      Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
      Detour - paid no mind to what is said
      Detour - all these bitter things I find
      Should have read that detour sign

      Well when I got to the place where that sign told me to face
      Well I figured all of my worries were behind but the further I go
      I find more chug holes there in the road,
      I should have read that detour sign

      [Chorus]

      Well, I got stuck down in the mud,
      All my hopes fell there with a thud
      I felt like my heartstrings were made of twine,
      I had no power to get
      From that hole I was in yet,
      Should have read that detour sign
