[Intro]
G  C  2x


[Verse]
       G                    C
All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go
     G                C
I’m standing here, outside the door
G                  C              D
I hate to wake you up and say goodbye
        G                     C
But the dawn is breaking, its early morn
    G                    C
The taxi’s waiting, it’s blowing its horn
G              C                D
Already I’m so lonesome I could die


[Chorus]
  G             C
So kiss me and smile for me
G                   C
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
G                C            D
Hold me like you never let me go
          G       C
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
G               C                   G
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
   C              D
Oh babe I hate to go


[Verse]
      G                  C
There so many times I’ve let you down
G                  C
So many times I’ve played around
G               C                 D
I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing.
      G            C
Every place I go I think of you
      G             C
Every song I sing I sing for you
     G              C                    D
When I’ll come back I’ll buy you wedding ring


[Chorus]
   G            C
So kiss me and smile for me
G                   C
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
G                C            D
Hold me like you never let me go
          G       C
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
G               C                   G
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
   C              D  D
Oh babe I hate to go


[Verse]
     G                C
Well now the time has come to leave you
G                    C
One more time please let me kiss you
G                        C             D
Then close your eyes and I’ll be on my way.
G               C
Dream about the days to come
G                    C
When I won’t have to leave you alone
G               C               D
About the times I won’t have to say


[Chorus]
G            C
Kiss me and smile for me
G                   C
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
G                C            D
Hold me like you never let me go
          G       C
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
G               C                   G
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
   C              D
Oh babe I hate to go
    G       C
I’m leaving on a jet plane
G               C                   G
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
   C              D
Oh babe I hate to go
