"Wichita Lineman" as written by and Jimmy Webb....
I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main roads
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wires
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
If it snows that stretch down South
Will never take 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

    Lyric CorrectionI was just listening to the Freedy Johnston version of this song, and he varies from the original lyrics. The corrected lyrics are as follows.

    Thank you.

    I hear you singing in the wires
    I hear you through the whine

    Is still on the line

    I know I need a short vacation
    But it don't look like rain
    And if it snows that stretch down south
    Will never take the strain

    And I need you more than want you
    And I want you for all time

    And I need you more than want you
    And I want you for all time
    And the Wichita lineman
