"Leaving on a Jet Plane" as written by and John Denver....
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 breaking it's early morn the taxi's waitin' 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 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
Every place I'll go I'll think of you every song I'll sing I'll 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 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
So kiss me and smile for me...
I hate to go I hate go
