1965 Songs: King of the Road

Short post.  Until I looked up songs from 1965, I had no idea this song was actually from 1965.  I really thought it was from the late ’50s.  Shows you what I know.  When I was younger, I also found it hard to believe that the Rooster in Disney’s Robin Hood, was also the same guy who sang “King of the Road”.  “Not in Nottingham” ranks up there with “King of the Road” as far as I’m concerned.
