King Of The Road

Roger Miller

 CFG7C
 Trailer for sale or rent,   rooms to let fifty cents
 CFGG7
 No phone, no pool, no pets ... I ain't got no cigarettes
 CF
Ah, but ... two hours of pushin' broom
 G7C
Buys a eight-by-twelve four-bit room
 C7FG7C
I'm a ... man of means, by no means .... King of the Road

 CFG7C
 Third boxcar, midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine
 CFGG7
 Old worn-out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues
 CF
I smoke ...  old stogies I have found
 G7C
 Short, but not too big around
 C7FG7C
I'm a ... man of means, by no means .... King of the Road

Bridge:
 CF
I know every engineer on every train
 G7C
 All of their children, and all of their names
 CF
And every handout in every town
 GG7
And every lock that ain't locked, when no one's around, I sing ...

 CFG7C
 Trailer for sale or rent,   rooms to let fifty cents
 CFGG7
 No phone, no pool, no pets ... I ain't got no cigarettes
 CF
Ah, but ... two hours of pushin' broom
 G7C
Buys a eight-by-twelve four-bit room
 C7FG7C
I'm a ... man of means, by no means .... King of the Road

Great song to practice bar chords... play 'bar G' and 'bar C' on 5th fret, lift ring finger to play G7 & C7. Slide G down 2 frets to play 'bar F', and that's it!


G: 3 5 5 4 3 3
G7: 3 5 3 4 3 3
C: 3 3 5 5 5 3
C7: 3 3 5 3 5 3
