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
The Wichita lineman is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation
But it doesn't look like rain
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
The Wichita lineman is still on the line

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
The Wichita lineman is still on the line
Still on the line, still on the line
