Leaving On A Jet Plane

  • (John Denver)

            So kiss me and smile for me
            Tell me that you'll wait for me
            Hold me like you'll never let me go
            For I'm leaving on a jet plane
            Don't know when I'll be back again
            Oh babe I hate to go

    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 blowing his horn
    Already I'm so lonesome I could cry

    There's so many times I've 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'll think of you
    Every song I sing I'll sing for you
    When I come back I'll wear your wedding ring

    Now the time has come to leave you
    One more time let me kiss you
    Then close your eyes, I'll be on my way
    Dream about the days to come
    When I won't have to leave alone
    About the time I won't have to say

    (as sung by Peter Paul & Mary)
