                C                             F

    All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go

            C                      F
    I’m standin’ here outside your door

        C                       Am                G   G7
    I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

                 C                            F
    But the dawn is breakin’, it’s early morn
            C                         F

    The taxi’s waitin’, he’s blowin’ his horn

           C             F                          G   G7
    Already I’m so lonesome, I could die


           C                  F                C                         F
    So kiss me and smile for me, Tell me that you’ll wait for me

     C                           Dm            G7
    Hold me like you’ll never let me go

                     C       F                        C                       F
    ’Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane,  Don’t know when I’ll be back again

    C      Am                   G7
      Oh babe, I hate to go


                      C                    F
    There’s so many times I’ve let you down

            C                      F
    So many times I’ve played around

       C                    Am                     G     G7
    I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing

                C                 F
    Every place I go, I’ll think of you

              C                    F
    Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you

                C                     Am                      G        G7
    When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring


      C                        F
    Now the time has come to leave you
    C                       F

    One more time, let me kiss you

              C                    Am
    Then close your eyes, I’ll be on my way

      C                       F
    Dream about the days to come

             C                      F
    When I won’t have to leave alone

        C                   Am                   G  G7
    About the times, I won’t have to say
