    @debraann654 Wow, have you mirrored my own thoughts. So comforting, and pleasing, to know that someone else has the same perspective, and delights in it.

    Love it! I just wish he had also played the instrumental closing too. I love the drums and strings in that section of the song.

    @ MrJim12341121: And….he’s singing LIVE.

  11. notmeforsure100 says:

    mr.jim12341121, I agree with you totally. Except that this rap techno twitter facebook google digital world can kiss my black ass. Man even as a black man, i wonder how bad the omish life really is? cause the world in which I grew up here in america is gone. I miss all of my white friends and black friends and hispanic friends, and jewish friends i grew up with. We shared tv shows, movies, music, sports, and in 1975 we got along great. Heres to yesterday!

  12. unchainedmelody1 says:

    THE BEST LOVE LYRIC OF ALL TIME….AND I NEED YOU MORE THAN WANT YOU AND I WANT YOU FOR ALL TIME…..

  13. GiovannaNYC says:

    This song reminds me of my life, all work, and no life, while my family grows and their deaths pass me by.

  14. faschuck says:

    Now THIS is what I call “REAL COUNTRY!” Glenn Campbell is indeed one of the last true troubadors… :^)

    @1960sgirl1 haha…. I’m trying to get a copy of it!! I bought the soundtrack on vinyl the other day and SO WANT to see the movie! Netflix had it, but not anymore… crappy digital age!

  16. 1960sgirl1 says:

    Remember the movie he was in … “Norwood’ ????

  17. debraann654 says:

    This makes me think of simpler times. I miss these type of songs with clear voices that one can close their eyes and just listen. Takes you to lying ona grassy field and looking up at the blue sky without any cares. We all need that!

    I saw Glen Campbell on a talk show with his wife last night….so sad to hear he has alzheimers….this has always been my fav song of his…..thanks for posting

  19. comedianTJ says:

    @MrJim12341121 ——–AMEN DUDE! I think the line “I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time” is one of the greatest lyrics ever written. And for all the haters, notice I said “ONE OF THE GREATEST” not the greatest.

    I remember hearing this song on the summer replacement show and wanting the album so bad I saved up my baby sitting money to get it. There was a special promotion where you could get a lithograph poster of Glen with purchase of the album. I still have the album, but the poster got lost long ago.
    When I heard that Glen has Alzheimers, I cried. One of the most beautiful voices to ever sing on the planet will soon be silenced and there won’t be another one like it again in my lifetime.

    Glen Campbell will always remain one of the greatest performers this song still beings chills to my soul, the soul of the lineman comes through the line through Glens delicately haunting lyrics and voice. I was saddened to find out he is suffering from Alzeimers. Glen know your fans will never forget your contributions to the music world. You will always embody the soul of The Wichita Lineman to me, You are and will always be remembered!

    I remember when this song came out. We love it because it came at a time when all was still right with the world.

  24. JacksonPerdue says:

    since the land line is almost obsolete he could update this with the Witchita Verizonman

    There is a place for all kinds of creativity. Simple as that. I know many of us yearn for the simpler times, but they aint coming around again until we stand up up and make it happen.

    Light a candle.
