Glen Campbell – Wichita Lineman

Verleden week genoten van de uitvoering van Keith Urban? Dit is de originele versie van Wichita Lineman van Glen Campbell uit 1968 van het album Wichita Lineman. Het was destijds de tweede #1 notering voor Glen Campbell.

Songtekst:

I am a lineman for the county.
And I drive the mainroad.
Lookin’ in the sun for another overload.
I hear you singing in the wire.

Chorus 1
I can hear you thru 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,
won’t ever stand the strain.
And I need you more than want you.

Chorus 2
And I want you for all time.
And the Wichita Lineman,
is still on the line.

(Lead, then Repeat last chorus)
