KING OF THE ROAD  R. Miller

[G]Trailer for [C]sale or rent,[D] rooms to let, [G]fifty cents,
No phone, no [C]pool, no pets,[D] I ain't got no cigarettes, ah but
[G]Two hours of [C]pushing broom buys a[D] eight by [G]twelve fourbit room,
I'm a man of [C]means by no means,[D] King of the [G]Road
[G]Third box car [C]midnight train,[D] destination [G]Bangor, Maine,
Old worn out [C]suit and shoes,[D] I don't pay no [G]union dues, I smoke
Old stogies [C]I have found,[D] short, but not too [G]big around,
I'm a man of [C]means by no means,[D] King of the [G]Road

key change

I know [G#]every engineer on [C#]every train,
[D#]All of the children and [G#]all of their names
And every handout in [C#]every town
And [D#]ev'ry lock that ain't locked when
No one's around I sing ...

[G#]Trailer for [C#]sale or rent,[D#] rooms to let, [G#]fifty cents,
No phone, no [C#]pool, no pets,[D#] I ain't got no cigarettes, ah but
[G#]Two hours of [C#]pushing broom buys a[D#] eight by twelve [G#]fourbit room,
I'm a man of [C#]means by no means,[D#] King of the [G#]Road

good transposal

Good version of this song, but the original starts on "Bb" with a key change to "B" for the repeat of the first verse.
