Upfront. Written with Roger Miller’s KING OF THE ROAD as a template

No place to lay His head
But a lot of folks He fed
No crown no private jet
Royalty with no regrets but ah

Dusty roads he traveled down
Earned Him a cross and thorny crown
He was a man of means by no means
Called King of the Jews

Middle cross—great sacrifice
Destination: paradise
Discarded robe and shoes
But He sure paid all our dues

Changed people that he found
Short or tall or big around
Man of means by no means
Called King of the Jews

He knew every fisherman
On every ship
How they tied all their knots
So the nets wouldn’t slip

He knew people got hungry
So after he taught
He fed many thousands
With the little they brought

No place to lay His head
But a lot of folks he fed
No crown no private jet
Royalty with no regrets but ah

Three days stayed in that tomb
Bought us a house with many rooms
He was a man of means by all means
Called king of the Jews

That's awesome. King of the Road was the first song my dad taught me to play on guitar.

Wow. I’d sure like to hear you sing the lyrics while playing the music on your guitar. Thanks for your response. It blessed my heart
