Leavin' on a Jet Plane

              C                            F

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go

              C                   F
I’m standing here outside your door

   C                     F                    G
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

             C                          F
But the dawn is breakin’ it’s early morn

        C                         F
Taxi’s waitin’, he’s blowin’ his horn.

     C               F                     G
Already I’m so lonesome I could die.

      C                F             C

So kiss me and smile for me,

Tell me that you’ll wait for me

  C                      F                   G
Hold me like you’ll never let me go.

    C       F                    C
I’m leavin’ on a jet plane

                   F                                       C
Don’t know when I’ll be back again

       F                  G
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.
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 my eyes, 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
