I am a lineman for the county

And I drive the main road

Searchin’ in the sun for another overload

I hear you singing 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

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
