The chords were really difficult to work out in this song....
I've given it my best shot though, and they sound pretty close.

                       Bb(add9)  
I am a lineman for the county,
F/A                     Gm
   And I drive the main road.
Dm7              Am       G          D
Searchin' in the sun for another overload.
                          C
I hear you singing in the wires,
                           G    Gm 
I can hear you through the whine,
                 D      A7sus                 Bb   C   Bb  C
And the Witchita lineman      is still on the line.



                        Bb(add9)
I know I need a small vacation,
F/A                       Gm
   But it don't look like rain.
    Dm7               Am
And if it snows, that stretch down south
     G               D
Will never stand the strain.
                         C
And I need you more than want you.
                       G   Gm9
And I want you for all time. 
                 D      A7sus                 Bb   C   Bb  C
And the Witchita lineman      is still on the line.

                         C
And I need you more than want you.
                       G   Gm
And I want you for all time.
                 D      A7sus                 Bb  C  Bb  C
And the Witchita lineman      is still on the line.
                Bb   C   Bb
Is still on the line.
             C  Bb  C  Bb
Still on the line.
                 C      Bb               C  Bb  C
And the Witchita lineman is still on the line.
             Bb  C  Bbmaj7
Still on the line.
