By the Time I Get to Phoenix - chords, tab and comments

At the bottom you'll find a link to the complete lyrics.

What would have happened to Glen Campbell, if not for Jimmy Webb (and Phil Spector)? That guy has a remarkable voice, but little harmony skills and absolutely no idea about writing material himself. Jimmy's songs were bulls eye, and this one along with "Galveston" and "Witchita Lineman" *made* the artist Glen Campbell. But you'd better dig for Webb's own recordings - besides being a genuine and genious songwriter, he's also an excellent performer.
Bm                                      C#m
by the time I get to Phoenix she'll be rising
        Bm                                  C#m
she'll find the note I left hanging on her door
         D                       Bm        C#m
she'll laugh when she reads the part that says I'm leaving
             Bm                Bm/A        G    Esus4
'cause I've left that girl so many times before

          Bm              Bm/A             F#m
...though time and time I tried to tell her so
         Bm    Bm/A  G6           Amaj7 
she just didn't know I would really go
