Leaving on a Jet Plane

Monday, December 28, 2015

Leaving On A Jet Plane, John Denver wrote this in 1966. I'm not leaving, my buddy Bex is coming back from New Orleans. I got the American Airlines app for my phone, so I can track the delays, and she's texting me also. So far, her flight's gone from due in @ 8:02P to 9:50P. Ah, the hazards of winter traveling.



All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breaking; it's early morning
The taxi's waiting he's blowing his horn
I'm ready 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 leaving 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
And tell you that they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I 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 leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go


Now the time is come to leave you
One more time I let me kiss you and
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 that I want have to say


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 leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go


I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go
I'm leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane
