wichita lineman lyrics – tom jones

i am a lineman for the county.
and i drive the main road.
searching in the sun for another overload.
i hear you singing in the wire.
i can hear you thru 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.

(lead, then repeat last chorus)
