Can you produce this with the auto.dta data set?

For example:

sysuse auto,clear
graph bar mpg, over(head) text( 20 25 "50_25"  20 50 "50_50" 20 59
"50_59") bar(1, fcolor(gs15))

the added text is where it is expected.

Also, why would you expect "50_59" to be above "50_50" since you are
only changing the x coordinate?
