Leaving On A Jet Plane

John Denver

1) All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
2) There's so many times I've let you down
3) Now the time has come to leave you

1) I'm standing here outside your door
2) So many times I've played around
3) One more time, let me kiss you

1) I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
2) I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
3) Then close your eyes, I'll be on my way

1) But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
2) Every place I go, I'll think of you
3) Dream about the days to come

1) The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
2) Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
3) When I won't have to leave alone

1) Already I'm so lonesome I could die
2) When I come back I'll bring your wedding ring
3) About the times I won't have to say:

Chorus: (1, 2 & 3)
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 jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go....

(3rd Verse only repeat last three lines)

the 3rd C of each verse and chorus should actually be an Am7

"cjtroyer the 3rd C of each verse and chorus should actually be an Am7"

Remember to transpose Am7 (IIm7) if you change the original key from G

I think it's an Em in key of G
