Wichita Lineman     -     Jimmy Webb

Gm7                      Bbmaj7       F                    Gm7
  I am a lineman for the county       and I drive the main road

Dm7              Am7     G       D
searchin' in the sun for another overload.

                          Am7                               G
I hear you singing in the wires,      I can hear you in the whine

Gm                 D        Am7                  Bb
   And the Wichita Lineman       is still on the line.

Am7   Bb (hit once and let ring)

Gm7                     Bbmaj7         F                      Gm7
  I know I need a small vacation,      but it don't look like rain.

    Dm7              Am7                  G              D
And if it snows that sounthern load won't ever stand the strain.

                         Am7                                    G
And I need you more than want you,       and I want you for all time.

Gm                  D         Am7                    Bb
    And the Wichita Lineman          is still on the line.

Am7     Bb     Gm7     Bb     C     Bc     C      G

(I don't recall the last G being on the Glen Campbell recording,
but it makes for a nice closure).

The Gm chords in the first line are wrong and should read Bb/C or C11 The verse ends on BbMAJ7 chord and goes to a C2 and back to BbMAJ7 for the second verse. The F chord in the first lines of the verses should have an A bass.

Lyric should read:
"And if it snows, that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain"
