Some other versions of "By the Time I Get to Phoenix"

By the time I get to Phoenix
she'll be rising
She'll find the note
I left hanging on her door
She'll laugh when she reads the part
that says I'm leaving
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 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 so
she just didn't know
I would really go
