“Leavin’ on a Jet Plane” ?


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 breakin’, it’s early morn
The taxi’s waiting, he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could cry.

 So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go.,,
I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

– John Denver

  “Oh, babe I hate to go…” to the airport could be the lament of today’s travelers. Gone are the days of spectacular fare wars, arriving a few minutes early and making a mad dash to the gate or carrying on that bottle of water, much less all those amenities that are now “extras” we’re now asked to pay for.
