Day 199 – King of the Road

Today’s dance was fun. We started our day out in Hays, Kansas – a very cool little college town in KS. We had dinner last night at Gella’s/JB’s. It was very good – a pleasant surprise after a long day of driving through Kansas! This morning we had a really good coffee at Semolino’s coffee shop – also in downtown Hays.

We were singing King of the Road in the car and when we saw the train tracks and that the trains were accessible we thought this would work just fine. It was Mark’s idea originally, but after he gave it to me – it was mine too.

I am now uploading version 2 because, as I suspected, the Roger Miller version didn’t make it through Youtube’s copyright screening and was blocked. It’s a drag when that happens, but as often happens, I like this Dean Martin version better for my dance. I was dancing from memory an was hearing a swingy tempo in my head which fit this version better.
