A           D
Trailer for sale or rent
E              A
Rooms to let...fifty cents.  
             D
No phone, no pool, no pets
E
I ain't got no cigarettes
         A            D
Ah, but..two hours of pushin' broom
       E               A
Buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
              D                         
I'm a, man of means by no means
E              A
   King of the road.
A             D
Third boxcar, midnight train
E             A
Destination...Bangor, Maine.
             D
Old worn out suit and shoes,
E
I don't pay no union dues,
        A          D
I smoke old stogies I have found
E                  A
Short, but not too big around
             D                  
I'm a man of means by no means
E              A
   King of the Road.

A#                             D#
I know every engineer on every train
F                          A#
All of their children, and all of their names
                     D#
And every handout in every town
    F
And every lock that ain't locked
F
When no one's around.  I sing:
A#           D#
Trailers for sale or rent
F             A#
Rooms to let, fifty cents
             D#
No phone, no pool, no pets
F
I ain't got no cigarettes
         A#            D#
Ah, but, two hours of pushin' broom
        F               A#
Buys a, eight by twelve four-bit room
             D#                  
I'm a man of means by no means
F              A#
   King of the Road.
