I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun
For another overload
I hear you singin' in the wires
I can hear you through 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
Will never 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
