Guns N’ Roses definitely knows how to show love to their Vancouver fans last week as part of it’s Not In This Lifetime Tour. They further shocked their fans when they did a Glen Campbell cover of the late country singer’s ‘Wichita Lineman’ paying tribute to the said country singer who passed away last month due to Alzheimer’s disease.

Wichita Lineman, Guns N’ Roses

“We’re going to play something we’ve never played before. It might not be your thing, but we’re just trying to pay a tribute to someone, It’s not what you think.

Something else we’ve never done. Our own little arrangement of it. If anybody will fuck up on it it’ll be me,” he admitted. “Anyway. We’ll give it a go.”

Those were Axl Rose’s preview as Guns N’ Roses geared to play a 1968 hit of the Rhinestone Cowboy singer. While they did a mellow rock on a Campbell hit, it was evident that the fans cheered so hard for their rendition as it was an excellent way to pay tribute to a figure who contributed and defined country music throughout his career.

Watch their once in a lifetime rendition here:

“Wichita Lineman” lyrics

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
