"King of the Road" as written by and Roger Miller....
Trailers for sale or rent rooms to left fifty cents
No phone no pool no pets I ain't got no cigarettes
But two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve four bit 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 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

I know every engineer on every train 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
Trailers for sale or rent...
King of the road king of the road
