Roger Miller performs "King Of The Road".Live video.

"King of the Road" is a song written and originally recorded in November 1964 by country singer Roger Miller.The lyrics tell of the day-to-day life of a vagabond hobo who, despite being poor (a "man of means by no means"), revels in his freedom, describing himself humorously as the "king of the road". It was Miller's fifth single for Smash Records

Roger Miller King Of The Road lyrics

Trailer 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 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 the children and all of their names

And every handout 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 fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah but, 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 fifty cents

No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom buys a

Eight by twelve four-bit room...
