LEAVING ON A JET PLANE


John Denver



[G][D][G][D]


All my [G] bags are packed, I'm [C] ready to go; I'm [G] standing here out-[C]-side your door

[G] I hate to wake you [Em] up to say good-[Am]-bye [D]

But the [G] dawn is breakin' it's [C] early morn; The [G] taxi's waitin' he's [C] blowin' his horn

[G] Already I'm so [Em] lonesome I could [Am] die [D]


So [G] kiss me and [C] smile for me; [G] Tell me that you'll [C] wait for me

[G] Hold me like you'll [Em] never let me [Am] go [D]

'Cause I'm [G] leavin' [C] on a jet plane; [G] Don't know when [C] I'll be back again

[G] Oh, [Em] babe, I hate to [Am] go [D]


There's so [G] many times I've [C] let you down; [G] So many times I've [C] played around

[G] I tell you now, [Em] they don't mean a [Am] thing [D]

Every [G] place I go, I'll [C] think of you; Every [G] song I sing, I'll [C] sing for you

[G] When I come back I'll [Em] bring your wedding [Am] ring [D]


So [G] kiss me and [C] smile for me; [G] tell me that you'll [C] wait for me

[G] Hold me like you'll [Em] never let me [Am] go [D]

'Cause I'm [G] leavin' [C] on a jet plane; [G] Don't know when [C] I'll be back again

[G] Oh, [Em] babe, I hate to [Am] go [D]


[G] Now the time has [C] come to leave you; [G] One more time, [C] let me kiss you

Then [G] close your eyes, [Em] I'll be on my [Am] way [D]

[G] Dream about the [C] days to come; When [G] I won't have to [C] leave alone

[G] About the times [Em] I won't have to [Am] say [D]


[G] Kiss me and [C] smile for me; [G] tell me that you'll [C] wait for me

[G] Hold me like you'll [Em] never let me [Am] go [D]

'Cause I'm [G] leavin' [C] on a jet plane; [G] Don't know when [C] I'll be back again

[G] Oh, [Em] babe, I hate to [Am] go [D]


'Cause I'm [G] leavin' [C] on a jet plane

[G] Don't know when [C] I'll be back again

[G] Oh, [Em] babe, I hate to [Am] go [D]
