King Of The Road Lyrics

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let for 50 cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
two hours of pushin' broom
buys a eight by twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the 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 every engineer on every train
all of their children
all of their names
Every hand out in every town
and every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

I sing
Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let for 50 cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
two hours of pushin' broom
buys a eight by twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

I know every engineer on every train
all of their children
all of their names
Every hand out in every town
and every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

I sing
Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let for 50 cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
two hours of pushin' broom
buys a eight by twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let for 50 cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
two hours of pushin' broom
buys a eight by twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road
King of the road
King of the road
