John Denver – Leaving on a Jet Plane Lyrics

All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door1
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye2
But the dawn is breakin’
It’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’
He’s blowin’ his horn3
Already I’m so lonesome
I could die4

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me5
Hold me like you’ll never let me go6
‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again7
Oh babe, I hate to go8

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 thing9
Ev’ry place I go, I’ll think of you
Ev’ry song I sing, I’ll sing for you
When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring10

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

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you11
Then close your eyes
I’ll be on my way12
Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone13
About the times, I won’t have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go14
