(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
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go.

There's so many times, I've let me 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 bring your wedding ring.

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.

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
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.

I hate to go I hate go...
