The Lyrics

I am a housewife to a lineman,
And I wash his uniform.
Last time I put it in the washer, it was
Still being worn

I heard him singing in the dryer,
But he needed sunshine.
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line!

Nice surprise ending. Give it a second verse of equal wit, and I'd give it a 5-5-5 instead of a 4-5-4! (The original has two verses.)

Extra credit for knowing the author was Jimmy Webb, and not only that Glen Campbell had the biggest hit version.
