By The Time You Get To Phoenix
Recorded by Wanda Jackson
Written by Jim Webb

Am D7 G
By the time you got to Phoenix I was rising
Am D7 G
I read the note you left hanging on my door
C D7 G
Once again I read the words that said you're leaving
C F D7
But you've left me so many times before

Am D7 G
By the time you made Albuquerque I was working
Am D7 G
And at lunch I gave your best friend a call
C D7 G
He told me that he'd loved me for so long now
C F D7
He's been waiting for you to leave that's all

Am D7 G
By the time you make Oklahoma you'll be lonely
Am D7 G
You'll remember all the love I gave to you
C D7 G
You'll cry and you'll whisper I'm sorry
C F D7 G
But it's too late cause I'd found a love that's true
