King of the Road
Recorded by the Statler Brothers
Written by Roger Miller

G C D7 G
Trailer for sale or rent rooms to let fifty cents
C D7
No phone no pool no pets I ain't got no cigarettes ah but
G C D7 G
Two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
C D7 G
I'm a man of means by no means King of the Road

C D7 G
Third box car midnight train destination Bangor Maine
C D7
Old worn out suit and shoes I don't pay no union dues
G C D7 G
I smoke old stogies I have found short but not too big around
C D7 G
I'm a man of means by no means King of the Road

I know every engineer on every train
D7 G
All of the children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

repeat #1
