King Of The Road | Roger Miller


<< Go Back

This is a great song from Roger Miller. We play this song in the key of “G”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


(G)Trailers for (C)sale or rent,
(D)rooms to let (G)fifty cents,
No phone, no (C)pool, no pets,
(D*)I ain't got no cigarettes,
Ah, but (G)two hours of (C)pushin' broom,
 buys a (D)eight by ten (G)four bit room,
I'm a man of (C)means by no means, (D*)King of the Road,


Third boxcar (C)midnight train,
(D)destination (G)Bangor Main,
Old worn out (C)suit and shoes,
(D*)I don't pay no union dues,
I smoke (G)old stogies (C)I have found,
(D)short but not too (G)big around,
I'm a man of (C)means by no means, (D*)King of the Road,


Middle Section:
I know (C)every engineer on (G)every train,
(D)All of their children and (G)all of their names,
And (C)every handout in (G)every town,
And (D*)every lock that ain't locked when no ones around,


I sing,(G)Trailers for (C)sale or rent,
(D)rooms to let (G)fifty cents,
No phone, no (C)pool, no pets,
(D*)I ain't got no cigarettes,
Ah, but (G)two hours of (C)pushin' broom,
 buys a (D)eight by ten (G)four bit room,
I'm a man of (C)means by no means, (D*)King of the Road
