Wichita Lineman

R.E.M.'s take on Jimmy Webb's classic "existential country song" "Wichita Lineman" (1994) made famous by Glenn Campbell who recorded the song in 1968. Campbell passed away Tuesday at the age of 81.

 

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 wire
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
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

 

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line
