KING OF THE ROAD

R. Miller

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

key change

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

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

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