This cross-picking arrangement is made to accompany the vocal. It mimics the finger-picking as played by John Denver. The Verses, Pre-Chorus, and Chorus all follow the same chord progression. If you get measures 4-7 Down, you can play the whole song with the original recording. At the end of the chorus there's an extra measure of D. When that part of the song comes along, you'd just play measure 7 twice. The song is slow, but there are a lot of string crossings that hop over 2 and even 4 strings. So you may need to slow it down even more to get started on this one. The first 3 measures is the intro that John Denver plays. If you just want to focus on learning what goes behind the vocals, use the looper for measures 4-7.Learn

Leaving on a Jetplane lyrics
All my bags are packed I'm ready to go I'm standin' 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 waitin' He's blowin' 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...ck 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 Every place I go, I'll think of you Every song I sing, I'll sing for you When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring 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 leavin' on a jet plane Don't know when I'll be back again Oh babe, I hate to go Now 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 alone About the times, I won't have to say 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 leavin' on a jet plane Don't know when I'll be back again Oh babe, I hate to go But, I'm leavin' on a jet plane Don't know when I'll be back again Oh babe, I hate to go
