King Of The Road  Roger Miller

[C]Trailer for [F]sale or rent,[G7]   rooms to let [C]fifty cents
[C]No phone, no [F]pool, no pets ..[G]. I ain't got no [G7]cigarettes
Ah, but ...[C] two hours of [F]pushin' broom
Buys a [G7]eight-by-twelve [C]four-bit room
I'm a ..[C7]. man of [F]means, by no means .[G7]... King of the [C]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 [C]every engineer on [F]every train
[G7]All of their children, and [C]all of their names
And [C]every handout in [F]every town
And [G]every lock that ain't locked, when [G7]no one's around, I sing ...

Repeat first verse and fade

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
