by the time i get to phoenix lyrics – glen campbell

by the time i get to phoenix, she’ll be rising
and she’ll find the note i left hangin’ on her door
and she’ll laugh when she reads the parts that says “i’m leavin'”
’cause i’ve left that girl so many times before

and by the time i make albuquerque, she’ll be working
and she’ll probably stop at lunch
lord and give me a call
but she’ll just hear that phone keep right on and ringin’
off the wall and that’s all

and by the time i make oklahoma, she’ll be sleepin’
she’ll turn softly and call my name loud
lord and she’ll cry just to think i’d really leave her
though time and time i try to tell her so, god know
guess she just didn’t know that i would really go

no, she didn’t know i’d go
she didn’t know i’d go
