Leaving On A Jet Plane

John Denver

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go
I’m standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breaking, it’s early morn
Taxi’s waiting he’s blow-in’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could die

   So kiss me and smile for me
   Tell me that you’ll wait for me
   Hold me like you’ll never let me go

   Cuz I’m leaving on a jet plane
   Don’t know when I’ll be back again
   Oh babe I hate to go

There’s so many times I let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now they don’t mean a thing

Every place I go I think of you
Every song I sing I sing for you
When I come back I’ll bring your wedding ring

Repeat Chorus

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Then close your eyes and I’ll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times I won’t have to say

Repeat Chorus
