[Verse 1]
        G                    C
All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go,
G                            C
   I’m standing here, out - side your door,
G                  C                 D   D4 D
I hate to wake you up to say good - bye,
         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      D4 D
   Already I'm so lonesome I could die---!


[Chorus]
     G            C/G
So, kiss me, and smile for me,
 G                  C/G
Tell me that you’ll wait for me,
 G                   C           D    D4 D
Hold me like you'll never let me go---------,
            G    C/G 
'Cause Im leaving on a jet plane,
G                  C/G
   Don’t know when I’ll be back again,
G       C               D   D4  D  Dsus2 D   D7
   Oh, babe, I hate to go--------!


[Verse 2]
            G               C
There's so many times I've let you down,
G                    C
So many times I've played around,
G                  C                      D   D4 D 
   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   D4 D
When I come back I’ll bring your wedding ring------!

 
[Chorus]
     G            C/G
So, kiss me, and smile for me,
  G                 C/G
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
 G                    C          D  D4  D
Hold me like you'll never let me go---------,
            G    C/G
'Cause Im leaving on a jet plane,
G                  C/G
   Don’t know when I’ll be back again,
G       C              D   D4   D     Dsus2 D
   Oh, babe, I hate to go--------!


[Verse 3]
G                     C
    Now the time has come to leave you,
G                   C
    One more time,       let me kiss you,
G                         C             D   D4  D
    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 alone,
     G             C                    D   D4 D
A - bout the times ....I won’t have to say-------...


[Chorus]
        G           C/G
...Oh, kiss me, and smile for me,
  G                 C/G
Tell me that you’ll wait for me,
 G                   C           D    D4  D
Hold me like you'll never let me go-------,
             G    C/G 
'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane,
G                  C/G
   Don’t know when I’ll be back again,
G       C               D   D4  D
   Oh, babe, I hate to go----------!


[Coda]
          G     C/G
But I'm leaving on a jet plane,
G                  C/G
   Don’t know when I’ll be back again,
G       C               D    D7   D9    D7
   Oh, babe, I hate to go------------!
