By the Time I Get to Phoenix" is a song written by Jimmy Webb. Originally recorded by Johnny Rivers in 1965, it was covered by American country music singer Glen Campbell on his album of the same name. Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) named it the third most performed song from 1940 to 1990

Like "MacArthur Park," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" was written by Jimmy Webb about a love affair he had with Suzy Horton, whom he began dating when they were high school students in Colton, California. She caused him considerable anguish when she ran off to Lake Tahoe to work as a dancer; it got worse when she married another guy, inspiring Webb to write "Worst That Could Happen," a hit for the Brooklyn Bridge in 1969. It took up virtually the whole side of an album, but I really liked i. "The whole talking blues thing at the beginning was like a novel - a major opus," he continued

The album By the Time I Get to Phoenix won the 1968 Grammy for Album of the Year, the first country album to do so.

After over five years of recording, Glen was finally rewarded with his first Top 40 hit (his theme-song-in-waiting "Gentle On My Mind" haven only gotten to #62 earlier in the year in its initial chart bid) with the Jimmy Webb classic “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” helping to put both gentlemen on the map. Capitol put this album together quickly to capitalize (no pun intended) on the single's momentum, using material that went back as far as 1962 and consisted largely of covers of songs from writers as disparate as Ernest Tubb and Paul Simon. Amazingly enough, not only does it work artistically and makes for a pleasantly consistent listen, it's almost a pop-country equivalent of Frank Sinatra's 1955 concept album "In The Wee Small Hours" - no mean feat. Both albums paint a picture of despair, longing, and loneliness due to their protagonist's poor decision making. The cover shot of Glen on the bus bench hugging his guitar case while he waits for his ride out of town says as much as the painting of Francis Albert leaning against that lamp post, smoking his last cigarette before going into his dimly lit apartment and turning the gun on himself. Powerful listening both, and proof that Ian Curtis wasn't exactly the first guy to put melancholia to music. Not by a long shot.
