Over the years, Glen Campbell has become a household name.  With a resume that consists of singer, guitar player, television host, and actor, this Arkansas-native also has multiple Grammy's Awards to his name.  

He won a Grammy Hall of Fame Award for his song "Wichita Lineman" in 2000.  The song was written by Jimmy Webb, Glen's frequent collaborator.  "Wichita Lineman" made Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." A music journalist even called the song the, "greatest pop song ever composed."  

Jimmy's inspiration for this song came to him when he was driving through a rural county in Oklahoma where there were endless telephone poles.  He noticed a single man working on top of a pole and imagined how he feels working up there alone every single day.  The song describes the loneliness that a telephone or electric power lineman feels while he works and his longing for his absent love

Watch Glen Campbell's rare, live performance of this hit song!

++++++++++++++++LYRICS BELOW++++++++++++++++

I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire,
I can hear you through 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
