Bobby Bare – Leaving On A Jet Plane lyrics

Oh my bags are packed I'm ready to go I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn the taxi's waitin' he's blowing his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry
So kiss me and smile for me tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
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
I tell you now that they don't mean a thing
Cause 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...

Now the time has come to leave you one more time let me kiss you
Then 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 time I won't have to say
Kiss me and smile for me...
