King of the Road

© Maid Marion

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pet
I ain't got no cigarettes

But two hours of pushing
Broom bys a eight to twelve four
Bed 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 an shoes
I don't pay no Union dues
I smoke old stokies I have found
Short but not to 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 evr'y lock that ain't locked when
No ones around I sing

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cent
No phone, no pool, no pet
I ain't got no cigarettes, you see
Two hours of pushing broom
buys a eight to twelve fourbed-room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road
King of the road
