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 Good bye. But the dawn is breaking; its early morn; The taxi’s waiting; He’s blowing his horn Already I’m so lonesome I could die. CHORUS: 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 dont know when I’ll be back again; Oh babe I hate to go There’s so many times I’ve let you done So many times I’ve played around I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing Every Place I go I’ll think of you Every song I sing I sing for you When I come back I’ll bring your wedding ring CHORUS Now the time has come to leave you One more time let me kiss you Close your eyes and 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 CHORUS
I first learned this song at Scout camp. Then I heard it in a preview for the movie “The Terminal”. There are now many recorded versions of it.
