Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Trailors for sale or rent, rooms to let 50 cents
No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes

Circle left
Ah, but 2 hours of pushin' broom
Buys an 8 by 12 four-bit room

Left allemande and promenade
Cause I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway you go
Down the middle with a right & left thru, take your baby home
Square thru and get me four, go walking round that way
Do a right & left thru, turn the girl, and then rollaway
Pass thru, U-turn back, swing that corner there
Swing this girl then promenade that square
Cause I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Third boxcar, midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn-out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues

Circle left
Smokin' old stogies, baby I have found
Short, but not too big around

Left allemande and promenade
Cause I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I know every engineer on every train
All of the children and all of their names
I know every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

Circle left
Trailors for sale or rent
Room to let 50 cents

Left allemande and promenade
Cause 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.
