Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman Lyrics

 

I am a lineman for the county 

And I drive the main road

Searchin' in the sun for another overload

I hear you singin' in the wire, 

I can hear you through the whine

And the Wichita lineman is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation 

But it don't look like rain

And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain

And I need you more than want you, 

And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman is still on the line

And I need you more than want you, 

And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman is still on the line
