King Of The Road By Roger Miller

C                      F            G7           C
Trailer for sale or rent rooms to let fifty cents
                      F                G7
No phone no pool no pets I ain't got no cigarettes ah but
C            F                                   G7              C
Two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
                           F                       G7          C
I'm a man of means by no means King of the Road

              F              G7          C
Third box car midnight train destination Bangor Maine
             F              G7
Old worn out suit and shoes I don't pay no union dues 
        C           F            G7                C
I smoke old stogies I have found short but not too big around
             F                 G7          C
I'm a man of means by no means King of the Road

                         F
I know every engineer on every train
G7                      C
All of the children and all of their names
                     F
And every handout in every town
    G7                                         
And every lock that ain't locked when no one's around
