King of the Road
(Roger Miller)

Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let-- fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
Ain't got no cigarettes,
Ah, but two hours of pushing broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bed room
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road.

Third boxcar, midnight train
Destination, Bangor Maine.
Old worn-out suit and shoes,
Don't pay no union dues,
I smoke old stogies I have found,
Short, but not too big around
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road.

     I know every engine on every train
     All of the children, all of their names
     Every handout in every town
     And every lock that ain't locked when no-one's around,

(repeat 1'st verse)
