A Gas Stop Box Song

 

Original song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

A relyric of the song “Wichita Lineman”, words and music by Jimmy Webb. I DO NOT own the rights to this incredible song.

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance or my pathetic singing attempt.  

 

Glen Campbell Sample 1

VERSE 1

 

I work the south side of Chi-cago,

 

Tending to utilities.

 

Turning off the gas,

 

Not so much when temperatures freeze.

 

 

Glen Campbell Sample 2

Yeah, when they bury deep a gas line.

 

There's a Stop Box near the streeet.

 

When your bill's paid on tiime, man.

 

We don't have to meet.

 

Glen Campbell Sample 3

VERSE 2

 

You know I discipline my children.

 

When they turn up the heat.

 

"Go straight to bed", is what I said,

 

"With stockings on your feet."

 

 

When you're shirtless in December,

 

On the chair beside the flame.

 

Bubba, try and remeember,

 

From where it all came.

 

 

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Glen Campbell Sample 4 

 

Please don't ask for an arrangement.

 

When I'm parked along the street.

 

When your bill's paid on time, ma'am.

 

We don't have to meet.

 

The End
