When I have done this, I have put the text in a separate frame from 
however the lines are done. You have the option of doing an underline 
effect on the font - choose the one that underlines words and spaces.
Generally I have drawn lines so that the length of the lines is easily 
and precisely controlled, then done a multiple duplicate to make as many 
as I would like, then group to place them and align with the text. If 
the text is in a separate frame, you can right justify if you like, so 
each label is the same distance from its line.
