I´ve found these songs:
Faith Hill / You Will Be Mine
Sheryl Crowe / It's Only Love

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.
Thanks. The Faith Hill one looks pretty good.
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.

I don't know if this is any use, but it does have some future perfects:
