Wichita lineman  Glen Campbell

X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2]

Wichita Lineman - Jimmy Webb
                                                                        [Bb/C]  I am a lineman for the [Bbmaj7]county       [F/A]and I drive the main [Gm7]road
                                    [Dm]searchin' in the [Am7]sun for [G]another over[D]load.
                                    I hear you singing in the [Cadd9]wires,      I can hear you in the [G/B]whine
                                    [Bb6]       And the Wichita [D/A]Lineman  [G/A]         is still on the [Bbmaj7]line.
                                    [Cadd9]   [Bbmaj7]
                                                                        [Bb/C]  I know I need a small [Bbmaj7]vacation,      [F/A]but it don't look like [Gm7]rain.
                                    And [Dm]if it snows that [Am7]southern load won't [G]ever stand the [D]strain.
                                    And I need you more than [Cadd9]want you,       and I want you for all [G/B]time.
                                    [Bb6]        And the Wichita [D/A]Lineman   [G/A]       is still on the [Bbmaj7]line.
                                    [Cadd9]     [Bbmaj7]     [Cadd9]     [Bbmaj7]

The automatic chord diagram below for Bb/C should be Bb chord with a C bass i.e barre 3rd fret across the 5th, 4th, 3rd and 2nd strings. Am7 is better voiced as a C chord with open A in the bass. Bb6 is better as simply 1st fret 5th string, open 4th, open 3rd and 3rd fret 2nd string, and a G on the first string if you want. (Moose on theLoose 20th Sep 2011)

Kudos. The Cadd9 brought the song together for me - other tabs missed this. Jim M

That should be "I hear you singing in the wires...I can hear you on the lines"
