Playing Catch Up – Love Is In Da Blog – Day 18

The category for Day 18 was for a love song about travel for #LoveIsInDaBlog. Another oldie but goodie here. Peter, Paul and Mary’s “Leaving on a Jet Plane”! For your additional pleasure I have included the John Denver with Mama Cass Elliot version from 1972, which by the way the banter before they sing is such a relevant message to Americans today in this election year! I did not realize that Cass Elliott had actually written this song. You learn something new everyday!!!

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!

Lyrics

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 breaking it’s early morn
The taxi’s waiting he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
(So kiss me and smile for me)
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
(Tell me that you’ll wait for me)
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
(Hold me like you’ll never let me go)
’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane
(’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane)
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
(Don’t know when I’ll be back again)
Oh babe I hate to go
(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

Everyplace I go I’ll think of you
Every song I sing I’ll sing for you
When I come back I’ll wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
(So kiss me and smile for me)
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
(Tell me that you’ll wait for me)
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
(Hold me like you’ll never let me go)
’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane
(’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane)
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
(Don’t know when I’ll be back again)
Oh babe I hate to go
(Oh babe I hate to go)

Noe the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Then close your eyes and I’ll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave you alone
About the times I won’t have to say Goodbye, everybody¡

So kiss me and smile for me
(So kiss me and smile for me)
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
(Tell me that you’ll wait for me)
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
(Hold me like you’ll never let me go)
’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane
(’cause I’m leaving on a Jet Plane)
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
(Don’t know when I’ll be back again)
Oh babe I hate to go
(Oh babe I hate to go)
