    Default Future Perfect Songs?

    Anyone know any songs that use the future perfect? Bit of a long shot, I know. I've tried Googling, but given that there's a song titled Future Perfect, along with a record company and radio station with the name, I'm not getting very far.

    You could try 'Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight' - I knew it on* a Flying Burrito Brothers record once, though I don't know if they wrote it. And I don't know if the lyrics have any Future Perfects; just seems like a possibility.

    Also (possibilities) 'Twenty-four hours from Tulsa' and 'By the time I get to Phoenix'. But Future Perfect constructions don't spring readily to the lips of truck drivers, so I'm not at all sure.
