The Proclaimers' version may use different chords but then you might want to
transpose it for your voice anyway.

Here we go (taken from a greatest hits collection):

KING OF THE ROAD
(Roger Miller)


Bb            Eb           F              Bb
  Trailer for sale or rent, rooms to let, fifty cents,
               Eb            F
  No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes, ah but
Bb             Eb                  F         Bb
  Two hours of pushing broom buys an eight by twelve fourbit room,
               Eb                F            Bb
  I'm a man of means by no means, King of the Road

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/proclaimers/king_of_the_road_crd_ver_2.html ]
Bb              Eb             F            Bb
  Third box car midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine,
               Eb             F               Bb
  Old worn out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues, I smoke
              Eb           F                   Bb
  Old stogies I have found, short, but not too big around,
               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
                       E
  And every handout in every town
      F#
  And ev'ry lock that ain't locked when

  No one's around I sing ...

B             E            F#             B
  Trailer for sale or rent, rooms to let, fifty cents,
               E             F#
  No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes, ah but
B              E                   F#               B
  Two hours of pushing broom buys a eight by twelve fourbit room,
               E                 F#           B
  I'm a man of means by no means, King of the Road
