            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
