Roger Miller - King of the road
Tekst en muziek: Roger Miller
(1964)






Trailers 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 pushin’ 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 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
I sing



Trailers 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 pushin’ broom buys a
Eight by twelve four-bit room
I’m a man of means by no means
King of the road



Trailers 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 pushin’ broom buys a
Eight by twelve four-bit room
