All my bags are packed
Im ready to go
Im standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin
Its early morn
The taxis waitin
Hes blowin his horn
Already Im so lonesome
I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Theres so many times Ive let you down
So many times Ive played around
I tell you now, they dont mean a thing
Evry place I go, Ill think of you
Evry song I sing, Ill sing for you
When I come back, Ill bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
Then close your eyes
Ill be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I wont have to leave alone
About the times, I wont have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that youll wait for me
Hold me like youll never let me go
Cause Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, Im leavin on a jet plane
Dont know when Ill be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Many people believe that Peter, Paul and Mary wrote this song but really it's John's song.

An addition to the Peter, Paul, & Mary comment above. They sang it the same way that John Denver did originally on his "John Denver Sings" album. This album from John was not commercially released, it was just meant to be given to family and friends as a Christmas gift. Peter, Paul, & Mary were among those given a copy. Then when John actually released his first album, "Rhymes And Reasons" he recorded this song again; doing it the same way as he did before.

Then for his first "Greatest Hits" album, John went back into studio to re-record some of those songs. The new version of this song was much slower and so much more emotional and expressive.
