Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week’s award goes to Burl Ives, well known for singing songs such as “On Top Of Old Smokey”, “The Little White Duck”, “Mule Train” and a stirring rendition of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'”, however I have chosen his rendition of “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” as the feature song.

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 prob’ly 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 that I’d really leave her
Tho’ time and time I’ve tried to tell her so
She just didn’t know…I would really go.
