By the Time I Get to Phoenix

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Songwriter: Webb, Jimmy. Per Wiki, it was originally recorded by Johnny Rivers in 1965. Glen Campbell made it famous in 1967.

By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
And she'll laugh when she reads the part that says I'm leavin'
'Cause I've left that girl so many times before

By the time I make Albuquerque she'll be workin'
She'll probably stop at lunch and give me a call
But she'll just here that phone keep on ringin'
Off the wall, that's all

By the time I make Oklahoma she'll be sleepin'
She'll turn softly and call my name out low
And she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
Though time and time I've tried to tell her so

Oh, she just didn't know
I would really go
I would really go

    Animals are like friends, they need someone to care for them.

    I remember the Glen Campbell version so well. The first pic reminds me of my lab and how she looks every time I pull my suitcase out of the closet. Even though she's here with other family, she misses me and they tell me she acts different and seems depressed when I'm gone
