Long forgotten musical tracks # 80

This week's track will delight the hearts of the lovers of American Country Music.
The song, "King of the Road" was written and performed by country singer Roger Miller ( 1936-1992) in 1964. The lyrics narrate the day-to-day life of a vagabond,who despite being poor describs himself humorously as the "king of the road". The single 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. The song has been re-recorded by many other singers including Dean Martin and has been used in many Hollywood feature films including recent Brokeback Mountain.
