Well then folks, I’m heading off. See you in a bit.

And here’s a little John Denver for the road. But, I must admit that I like Ms. Kreviazuk’s rendition better.

Leaving On A Jet Plane

John Denver / Covered by Chantal Kreviazuk

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

I’m standing here outside the door

I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

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

The Taxi’s waitin’, he’s blown his horn

Already I’m so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me

Tell me that you’ll wait for me

Hold me like you’ll never let me go

‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane

Don’t know when I’ll be back again

Oh babe, I hate to go

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

So many times I’ve played around

I tell you now they don’t mean a thing

Ev’ry place I go I think of you

Ev’ry song I sing I sing for you

When I come back I’ll bring your wedding ring

Now the time has come to leave you

One more time, let me kiss you

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

Dream about the days to come

When I won’t have to leave alone

About the times I won’t have to say…
