King of the Road

G C D

Trailer for sale or rent

Rooms to let, fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets

I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah, but two hours of pushing broom

Buys an eight by twelve four bit room

I'm a man of means by no means

King of the Road

A D E

Third boxcar, midnight train

Destination Bangor Maine

Old worn out suit and shoes

I 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

 

Trailer for sale or rent,

Rooms to let, fifty cents

No phone, no pool no pets,

I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah, but two hours of pushing broom

Buys an eight by twelve four bit room

I'm a man of means by no means

King of the Road

 

I know every engineer on every train

All of the children and all of their names

And every hand-out in every town

And every lock that ain't locked

when no one's around, I sing
