Leaving on a Jet Plane

LYRICS

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.

REFRAIN:
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.

REFRAIN

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:

REFRAIN
