Detour
recorded by Hank Thompson
written by
Paul Westmoreland
 
G
Headed down life's crooked road

Lot of things I never knowed
D7
And because of me not knowing I now pine
G
Trouble got in the trail

Spent the next five years in jail
D7 G G7
Should have read that detour sign

C
De-tour there's a muddy road ahead
D7 G G7
De-tour paid no mind to what it said
C
De-tour oh these bitter things I find
G D7 G
Should have read that detour sign


When I got right to the place

Where it said about face
D7
I thought that all my worries were behind
G
But the father I go the more sorrow I know
D7 G
Should have read that detour sign

Repeat #2

When I got stuck in the mud

All my hopes dropped with a thud
D7
I guess that my heart stings are made of twine
G
Had no will power to get from the hole that I'm in yet
D7 G
Should have read that detour sign

Repeat #2
