No schematic but the Haynes Camaro book has the basic one for that year. Pep Boys sells these.
The problem sounds like it's around the headlight switch. Here's the wire colors and what they do.
Red - always hot - powers "blue" for headlights
Blue - to headlight dimmer switch

White - grounds for interior lights

Orange - fused power to dash lights/running lights - (powers green and brown)
Green - to dash lights
Brown - to running lights front and rear.

If you have dash lights then the input fused orange wire is good. I'd check power on the brown wire to see if it has 12 volts on it when the switch is on. If the switch is bad these are over the counter parts or can be pulled from just about any 70s GM car or truck.

I had the exact same problem with my 68. Turned out that the fuse holder clips for the tail lights in the fuse panel were rusted. I removed the fuse, polished the contacts with a dremel tool, replaced the fuse and the problem was solved. i don't know if this will help, but it worked for me.
