By the Time I Get to Phoenix
[unknown] Lyrics


By The Time I Get To Phoenix - Johnny Rivers

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
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 working
She'll prob'ly stop at lunch and give me a call
But she'll just hear 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 loud
And she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
Tho' time and time I try to tell her so
She just didn't know I would really go.
(Also performed by Glen Campbell)

LYRICS!!!
By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
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 working
She'll probably stop at lunch and give me a call
But she'll just hear 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
Tho' time and time I try to tell her so
She just didn't know I would really go

This may not be everybody's cup of tea, but Glen Campbell is awesome!!!

Sierra Silva

I sure love him! All of his songs!

Graham Jones

I have an eclectic taste in music from classical thro to rock & roll, pop, folk, folk/rock, prog rock, and just about anything I like but Glen Campbell will always feature as one of my favourites.

My favourite Glen Campbell song is 'A Better Place' from his album Ghost on the Canvas.
I was born in 1995 and I've been listening to him since I was around 6nyears old.
Its funny really, because when I was a kid and my Dad used to play his song I hated them, but then at some point in my later teens I started to listen more and then actually started to appreciate his great talent.

...and Jimmy Webb who wrote this song and many of Glen’s other hits.

Thom

He was my cup of tea along with Jimmy Webbs compositions.

The Orchestra in the back drop Makes me looooooooong for the past. For me, there's nothing more provoking than music to bring a yearning for my yesterdays. Music is so powerful! It can recapture the emotions, mood, and smell in the air of my surroundings. Music taps into my joys, sorrows, heart aches, and new beginnings. So, to you my friends of young or old I say, create for yourself, an arsenal of nothing but positive, loving and nurturing moments so you can one day, while reminiscing, wear a big smile, knowing that you took advantage of all of the positive moments of your yesterdays.
