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


[Verse 2]
C11                             Bbmaj7
     I know I need a small va - cation,
Fmaj7/A                         C11        Dm7
         But it don't look like rain, and, if it snows,
       Am7                     G4    G         D   D4 D
That stretch down south won't ever stand the strain,
                         Cadd9
And I need you more than want you,
                       G/B   Gm/Bb
And I want you for all time,
                  D/A     A7sus4
And the Wichita lineman...
                   Bbmaj7   Csus2    Bbmaj7
...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.
