Capo 1st fret

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

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

(move capo to 2nd fret)
       A                 D
I know every engineer on every train
E                       A
all of the children and all of their names
                      D
And every hand out in every town
    E
and every lock that ain't locked when no one's around, I sing

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

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