"..."King of the Road" is a 1964 song written and originally recorded by country singer Roger Miller.
The popular crossover record hit No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 1 on their Country and Easy Listening surveys. It was also No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart, and in Norway.
Miller recalled that the song started when he was driving and saw a sign on the side of a barn that said "trailers for sale or rent"...."
I love lots of versions of this song (click on the name to hear them):
