Leaving On A Jet Plane
- John Denver

          G                                   C
All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go.
      G                       C
I'm standing here outside your door.
  G                        C                  D
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye.
            G                                  C
But the dawn is breakin' and it's early morn'.
G                              C
Taxi's waitin' and he's blowin' his horn
   G                  C                        D
Already, I'm so lonesome I could die.

       G                  C
So, kiss me and smile for me.        < Start CHORUS
G                        C
Tell me that you'll wait for me.
G                         C                 D
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
G        C
I'm leavin' on a jet plane.
G                            C
     Don't know when I'll be back again.
G       C                     D
   Oh, babe. I hate to go.                 < End CHORUS

G                      C
Many Times I've let you down.
G                     C
Many times I've played around
  G                  C                        D
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
         G                 C
Every place I go I'll think of you.
         G                   C
Every song I sing I'll sing for you.
         G                     C                            D
When I come back I'll bring your wedding ring.


G                         C
Now the time has come to leave you.
G                     C
One more time, let me kiss you
 G                            C                 D
Close your eyes and I'll be on my way
G                        C
Dream about the days to come
         G                    C
When I won't have to leave alone
   G                    C                    D
About the times, I won't have to say
