By The Time I Get To Phoenix
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising,
She'll find the note I left hanging on the door,
She'll laugh we she reads the part that says I'm leaving,
Cause I've left that girl so many times before.

By the time I make Alberquerque she'll be working,
She'll probably stop at lunch and give me a call,
But she'll just hear the phone keep on ringing,
Off the wall, that's all.
By the time I make Oklahoma she'll be sleeping,
She'll turn softly and call my name out low,
She'll cry just to think I'd really leave her,
Though time and time I've tried to tell her,

She just didn't know, I would really go.

La mejor voz de la música Romántica Mundial...quizás de todos los tiempos. Engelbert Humperdinck King of Hearts saludos cordiales desde Chile.

Omar Cachay Jurado

Coincido contigo amigo y no me cabe la menor duda pero hay otro icono de la canción romantica, inigualable e inimitable, la mejor voz de México y d habla hispana el magistral, Javier Solis, en mi humilde opinión las dos mejores voces y los dos mejores cantantes del universo, uno canta en ingles y el otro en castellano.


A song worth remembering by an amazing artist of all time.

Bennie Wright
