By the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
she'll find the note I left hangin' on her door
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 working
she'll probably stop at lunch and give me a call
but she'll just hear 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 loud
and she'll cry just to think I'd really leave her
tho' time and time I try to tell her so
she just didn't know I would really go.
