John Denver – Leaving On A Jet Plane


This Friday Song Of The Day comes to you a bit earlier in the week, because well… I am leaving on a jet plane today. Where am I going? Nice, balmy Fairbanks, Alaska! I have a new job and will be doing some job training at the company’s headquarters. Of course for this occasion I just had to do John Denver – Leaving On A Jet Plane. This song can be found on his Voice Of America album.

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 it’s early morn
The taxi’s waiting he’s blowin’ 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
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 they don’t mean a thing

Everyplace I go I’ll think of you
Every song I sing I’ll 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 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…


Well, keep warm! I know I’ll be freezin my rumpus off. 🙂
