[Verse 1]
C11                         Bbmaj7  Fmaj7/A                       C11
     I am a lineman for the county,          and I drive the main road,
   Dm7           Am7          G4     G       D     D4 D
Searching in the sun for a - nother over - load,
                          Cadd9                              G/B    Gm/Bb
I hear you singing in the wires, I can hear you through the whine,
                  D/A   A7sus4                 Bbmaj7   Csus2    Bbmaj7
And the Wichita lineman...     is still on the line----------!

     I know I need a small va - cation,         but it don't look like rain,
     Dm7                 Am7                     G4    G         D     D4 D
And, if it snows, that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain,
                         Cadd9                             G/B   Gm/Bb
And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time,
                  D/A   A7sus4                 Bbmaj7   Csus2   Bbmaj7
And the Wichita lineman...     is still on the line----------!

Spot on!There is an instrumental break over the chord section that goes:

e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------1--------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3-0-----|
G|---2-3-2-0-2--------2-3-2----------------------------0--2|
D|--3-------3-------3-------3------3-----------------------|
A|-3--------------3--3--------3--3-------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

This ends on the D chord.
