Leavin' on a Jetplane

Song Author John Denver Lyrics by: John Denver Performer: John Denver Submitted by: Anonymous
All my ba[G]gs are packed, I'm re[C]ady to go
I'm st[G]anding here outsi[C]de your door
I ha[G]te to wake you [C]up to say goodb[D]ye  
but the da[G]wn is breaking, its e[C]arly morn'
the t[G]axi is waiting, he's bl[C]owin' his horn.
Alr[G]eady I'm so lo[C]nesome I could [D]die.

So ki[G]ss me and sm[C]ile for me.
T[G]ell me that you'll w[C]ait for me.
H[G]old me like you'll n[Am]ever let me go. [D]    
'Cause I'm l[G]eavin' [C]on a jetplane,
[G] don't know when I'[C]ll be back a[D]gain [G]    
oh, ba[C]be I hate to [D]go.  

Th[D]ere's so ma[G]ny times I've le[C]t you down;
So ma[G]ny times I've pla[C]yed around,
I te[G]ll you now th[C]ey don't mean a th[D]ing.
[D] Ev'ry pl[G]ace I go I'll th[C]ink of you,
Ev'ry s[G]ong I sing I'll si[C]ng for you.
When [G]I come back I'll we[C]ar your wedding [D]ring.

So ki[G]ss me and sm[C]ile for me.
T[G]ell me that you'll w[C]ait for me.
H[G]old me like you'll n[Am]ever let me go. [D]    
'Cause I'm l[G]eavin' [C]on a jetplane,
[G] don't know when I'[C]ll be back a[D]gain [G]    
oh, ba[C]be I hate to [D]go.  

[D] N  [G]ow the time has co[C]me to leave you,
[G]one more time let m[C]e kiss you,
Then cl[G]ose your eyes, and I'[C]ll be on my w[D]ay.  
[D] dr  [G]eam about the d[C]ays to come,
When [G]I won't have to le[C]ave alone,
A[G]bout the times [C]I won't have to [D]say.

Ki[G]ss me and sm[C]ile for me.
T[G]ell me that you'll w[C]ait for me.
H[G]old me like you'll n[Am]ever let me go. [D]    
'Cause I'm l[G]eavin' [C]on a jetplane,
[G] don't know when I'[C]ll be back a[D]gain [G]    
oh, ba[C]be I hate to [D]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, its early morn'
the taxi is waiting, 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 jetplane,
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.
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 wear your wedding ring.

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 jetplane,
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 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 I won't have to say.

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 jetplane,
don't know when I'll be back again
oh, babe I hate to go.
