Detour

“Detour” is a Western swing ballad written by Paul Westmoreland in 1945. The first recording was by Jimmy Walker with Paul Westmoreland and His Pecos River Boys, released in November 1945.

Patti Page released a version in 1951that first entered the Billboard chart on August 4, 1951, and stayed for 16 weeks – peaking at number five.

Duane Eddy recorded an instrumental version on his 1958 album “Have ‘Twangy Guitar Will Travel”. It was also used as the “b-side” to his 1959 single “The Lonely One”.

My arrangement is based on the Duane Eddy version.
