Headed [G]down life's [G7]crooked [G]road Lot of things I [G7]never [G]knowed And the cause of me not [G7]knowin', I now [D]pine Trouble [G]got in the [G7]trail Spent the [C]next five years in [C7]jail Should have [D]read [D7]that detour [G]sign. De[C]tour, there's a [C7]muddy road a-[C]head De[G]tour, paid no [G7]mind to what it [G]said De[C]tour, oh, these [C7]bitter things I [C]find Should have [D]read [D7]that detour [G]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. Chorus When I got stuck in the mud, all my hopes dropped with a "thud" I guess that my heart's strings are made of twine Had no will power to get - from the hole that I'm in yet Should have read that detour sign.
