1.

G / / / |/ / / Headed down life's crooked road, lots of things I never knowed, / |/ / / / |D / / And be-cause of me not knowing now I pine, / |G / / / |C / / Got In trouble on the trail, spent the next five years in jail, / |D / / / |G / / I should have read that detour sign.

chorus:

/ |C / / / |/ / / De-tour there's a muddy road a-head, / |G / / / |G / / De-tour paid no mind to what it said, / |C / / / |/ / / De-tour all these bitter things I find, / |D / / / |G / / - | I should have read that detour sign.

When I got to the place, where it said about face, I thought that all my worries were behind, But the further I go, the more weary, I know, I should have read that detour sign.

1.

When I got stuck in the mud, all my hopes dropped with a thud, I guess that my heart stings are made of twine, But the deeper I get into the hole that I'm in yet, I should have read that detour sign.
