Leaving on a Jet Plane
Written by John Denver
Recorded by Frank McKinnon


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 breakin'.
It's early morn.
The taxi 's waitin'
He's blowin 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.
'Cause I'm leavin'
on a jet plane.
I don't know when
I'll be back again.
Oh, Babe, I hate to go.

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.
And, when I come back,
I'll bring your wedding ring.


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
when I won't have to say:

If you have enjoyed listening to this music, please visit the Robin's Lockmith Services website. My understanding is that, whenever someone from anywhere in the world visits that website, it becomes more visible to people who use the internet to find a locksmith in Roswell, and that makes the locksmithing phone ring. That is how I pay my bills. Thank you.
