king of the road lyrics – jim white

trailer for sale or rent
rooms to let fifty cents
no phone, no pool, no pets
i ain’t got no cigarettes

i am a two hours of pushin’ broom buys a
eight by ten four bit room
i’m a man of means by no means

’cause i’m a king of the road
yes, i’m a king of the road
yeah, a king of the road
just a 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

’cause i’m a king of the road
a king of the road
king of the road
just a king of the road

i’m a king of the road
yeah i’m a king of the road
just the king of the road
the king of the road

i know every engineer on every train
all the children and all the good names
every handout in every town
and if it’s locked it ain’t locked if no one’s around

i say, trailer for sale or rent
rooms to let fifty cents
i’m a man no means by no means

’cause i’m a king of the road
yeah i’m a king of the road
yeah i’m a king of the road
yeah i’m a king of the road

just a king of the road
yeah i’m a king of the road
i’m a king of the road
king of the king of the king of the

trailer for sale or rent
rooms to let fifty cents
no phone, no pool, no pets
i ain’t got no cigarettes
