Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner, see saw your pet
Join hands and circle to the left around you bet
Men star right and roll it one time around
Left allemande your corner, then you weave that ring
Smokin' old stogies, baby, I have found
Dosado then you promenade on down
Cause I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade halfway round you go
Down the middle with a right & left thru, take your baby home
Square thru and get me 4, go walking round that way
Do a right & left thru, turn the girl and then roll away
Pass thru, u-turn back, swing that corner there
Left allemande new corner, then promenade that square
Cause I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

King Of The Road Lyrics ID: 548

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.
