"Leaving on a Jet Plane" as written by and John Denver....
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 goodbye
But the dawn is breaking

This 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'd 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 so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
But I am now, they don't mean a thing

Every place I go I think of you
Ever 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'd 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
Well now the time has come to leave your
One more time now 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 alote
About the times that I won't have to say
Oh kiss me and smile for me

Tell me that you'd 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
But I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But I'm leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane
