Gary Fjellgaard Song Lyrics > Contenders

King of the Road

Trailer for sale or rent
Room to let 50 cents
No phone no pool no pets
I ainít got no cigarettes
Ah but two hours of pushin broom
Buys an eight by twelve four bit room
Iím 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 donít pay no union dues
I smoke old stogies I have found
Short but not too big around
Iím a man of means by no means
King of the road

I know every engineer on every train
All of their children and all of their names
Every hand out in every town
Every lock that ainít locked
When no ones around I sing
