Leaving on a Jetplane Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

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 Jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Ah ah ah ah

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 wear 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 Jetplane
I 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 and I'll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave you alone
About the times that 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 Jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

I'm leaving on a Jetplane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

(And I'm)
Leaving on a Jetplane
(And I'm)
Leaving on a Jetplane
(And I'm)
Leaving on a Jetplane
