Leaving on A Jet Plane Song



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 Good bye.
But the dawn is breaking; its early morn;
The taxi's waiting; He's blowing 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 leaving on a jet plane dont know when I'll be back again; Oh babe I hate to go

There's so many times I've let you done
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Every Place I go I'll think of you
Every song I sing I sing for you
When I come back I'll bring your wedding ring


Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
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


CommentI first learned this song at Scout camp. Then I heard it in a preview for the movie "The Terminal". There are now many recorded versions of it.
