Wichita Lineman - Jimmy Webb
                                                                          I am a lineman for the county       and I drive the main road
                                    searchin' in the sun for another overload.
                                    I hear you singing in the wires,      I can hear you in 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 southern load won't ever 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.

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)

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

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