Bb            Eb           F              Bb
 Trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let, fifty cents
Bb            Eb            F
 No phone, no pool, no pets. I ain't got no cigarettes
       Bb            Eb                  F                Bb
Ah, but two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve four bit room
     Bb      Eb               F            Bb
I'm a man of means by no means king of the road

Bb              Eb             F            Bb
 Third box car, midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine
Bb            Eb             F
 Old worn out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues
       Bb           Eb           F                  Bb
I smoke old stogies I have found, short but not too big around
     Bb      Eb               F            Bb
I'm a man of means by no means king of the road

       B                 E
I know every engineer on every train
F#                      B
all of the children and all of their names
    B                 E
And every hand out in every town
    F#
and every lock that ain't locked when no one's around, I sing

B             E            F#             B
 Trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let, fifty cents
B             E             F#
 No phone, no pool, no pets. I ain't got no cigarettes
       B             E                   F#               B
Ah, but two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve four bit room
     B       E                F#           B
I'm a man of means by no means king of the road

B             E            F#             B
 Trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let fifty cents
B             E             F#
 No phone, no pool, no pets I ain't got no cigarettes
       B             E                   F#               B
