Wichita Lineman
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

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

Dwight, this is really a beautiful cover of Jimmy Webb's classic song. You need to add this to your concert play list. Awesome!


maybe he will, in tribute to Glen Campbell, now that he's passed away. It would be a great way to honor him and also play a really great song in an updated manner.

LOVE..LOVE...LOVE Dwight! But, I just love the original so much. The original is a bit slow, but it just works and is so nostalgic ❤
