By The Time I Get To Phoenix
[Fm]By the time I get to Phoenix she[Eb]'ll be rising
She'll [Fm]find the note I left hangin' on her [Eb]door
She'll [Ab]laugh when she reads the [Bb]part that says I'm [Gm]leavin' [Cm]
'Cause I've [Fm]left that girl so many times [Db]before [Bb]
By the [Fm]time I make Albuquerque she'll be [Eb]working
She'll [Fm]probably stop at lunch and give me a [Eb]call
But [Ab]she'll just hear that [Bb]phone keep on [Gm]ringin' [Cm]
Off the [Fm]wall that's [Db]all [Bb]
By the [Fm]time I make Oklahoma she'll be [Eb]sleepin'
She'll [Fm]turn softly and call my name out [Eb]low
And she'll [Ab]cry just to [Bb]think I'd really [Gm]leave her [Cm]
Though [Fm]time and time I tried to tell her [Db]so
She just [Bb]didn't know I would really [C]go.
[Bb]No, she didn't know I'd [C]go[Bb] [C]
