I don't even know the names of those Miller tunes, but there's one about "the chimes of big ben" and the "faces of the lit-tle chil-dren" that sticks out.

This is England Swings Like A Pendulum do. I think he managed to get on the TAMI show performing it alongside much hipper artists like James Brown, The bYrds & The Loving Spoonful.

And the one about how "you can't roller skate in a buffalo herd" (isn't that song called "Dang Me"?)

No you're confusing two songs. Can't Rollerskate in A Buffalo Herd is a title and Dang Me was covered by Shockabilly on Colosseum.
I like Roger Miller, enough to have a cheapo compi with about 25 of his songs on. Must remember to upgrade.
