Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't go no...
, allemande and weave, ah but
Two hours of pushing broom buys an
Eight by twelve four bit room, I'm a
Man of means by no means
King of the road


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade half way round
Come on and square thru get me four hands round
All the way and a right & left thru
You veer left and circulate one time and do a
Half tag, scoot back go
Swing your corner promenade let's go, I'm a
Man of means by no means
King of road


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I know every engineer on every train
All of their children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked
, left allemande and weave
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

King Of The Road
 
 

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

Lyrics by Roger Miller.
