King Of The Road    (1965)

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 an eight by ten, four bedroom
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road

Third boxcar, midnight train
Destination: Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suit an' 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
An' all of the children, an' all of their names
An' every handout in every town
An' 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 an eight by ten, four bedroom
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road

King of the road

King of the road
