Intro:  G  C  G  C

G                             C

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

I’m standing here outside your door

G                       C                      D(x2)

I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
G                            C

But the dawn is breaking, it’s early morn
G                          C

The taxi’s waiting, he’s blowing his horn

G                C                      D(x2)

Already I’m so lonesome I could cry


G                    C

So kiss me, and smile for me
G                          C

Tell me that you’ll wait for me
G                          C                D(x2)

Hold me like you’ll never let me go
G        C

I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
G                         C

I don’t know when I’ll be back again
G    C                    D(x2)

Oh babe, I hate to go

G                     C

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

So many times I’ve played around

G                      C                         D(x2)

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

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

Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you

G                        C                             D(x2)

When I come back, I’ll wear your wedding ring


G                       C

Now the time has come to leave you
G                      C

One more time, let me kiss you

G                          C                    D(x2)

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(x2)

About the times I won’t have to say
