Wichita Lineman     -     Jimmy Webb


[Intro]

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)


[Hook]

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.


[Bridge]

Am7     Bb     Gm7     Bb     C     Bc     C      G

                         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.

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.

Intro is: Bbmaj7 Cadd9 Bbmaj7 Bb/C
Verse is:
I am a lineman for the
Bbmaj7 F/A
county and I drive the main

Lineman, is still on the
Bbmaj7 Cadd9 Bbmaj7 Bb/C
line

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