Intro: | Amaj7 | D6/A | D | A | E | E7 |

       Amaj7                D6/A             Amaj7            D6/A
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go, I'm standing here outside your door
  Amaj7            F#m            E    E7
I hate to wake you up to say good-bye
        Amaj7                  D6/A            Amaj7                D6/A
But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn, the taxi's waiting, he's blowing his horn
  Amaj7        F#m             E    E7
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry

   A           D             A                   D
So kiss me and smile for me, tell me that you'll wait for me
A                   Bm           E
Hold me like you'll never let me go
    A       D              A                D
I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again
A    C#m             Bm   E
 Oh, babe, I hate to go

           Amaj7           D6/A             Amaj7           D6/A
There's so many times I've let you down, so many times I've played around
  Amaj7        F#m               E    E7
I tell you now they don't mean a thing
      Amaj7           D6/A                Amaj7          D6/A
Every place I go I'll think of you, every song I sing, I sing for you
     Amaj7            F#m               E    E7
When I come back I'll wear your wedding ring

   A           D             A                   D
So kiss me and smile for me, tell me that you'll wait for me
A                   Bm           E
Hold me like you'll never let me go
    A       D              A                D
I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again
A    C#m             Bm   E
 Oh, babe, I hate to go

Amaj7            D6/A               Amaj7         D6/A
Now the time has come to leave you, one more time let me kiss you
Amaj7                 F#m            E    E7
 Then close your eyes, I'll be on my way
Amaj7           D6/A               Amaj7           D6/A
Dream about the days to come, when I won't have to leave alone
 Amaj7          F#m             E    E7
About the times I won't have to say

A           D             A                   D
Kiss me and smile for me, tell me that you'll wait for me
A                   Bm           E
Hold me like you'll never let me go
    A       D              A                  D
I'm leaving on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll be back again
A       D              A                  D
Leaving on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll be back again
A       D              A                  D
Leaving on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll be back again
A    C#m     Bm     E
 Oh, babe I hate to go
