Glen Campbell – By The Time I Get To Phoenix lyrics

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
And she'll laugh when she reads the part that says I'm leavin'
'Cause I've left that girl so many times before
By the time I make Albuquerque she'll be workin'
She'll probably stop at lunch and give me a call
But she'll just here that phone keep on ringin'
Off the wall, that's all
By the time I make Oklahoma she'll be sleepin'
She'll turn softly and call my name out low
And she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
Though time and time I've tried to tell her so
Oh, she just didn't know
I would really go
I would really go
