Leave Kiss Way About 2/2 Leaving on a Jet Plane " is a song written by John Denver and Kenneth Browder in 1967 during a layover at an airport in Washington and recorded by the Michael Trio that year. The original title of the song was "Oh Babe I Hate To Go" but Denver's then producer, Milt Okun, convinced him to change the title. Denver wrote the song after his flight was delayed. Other artists recorded the song in 1967, including Spanky and our Gang and Peter, Paul and Mary on Album 1700. It did not become a hit until Peter, Paul and Mary released it as a single in 1969. It turned out to be their biggest (and final) hit, becoming their only #1 on the Billboard hot 100 chart in the United States. The song also spent three weeks atop the easy listening chart. Now the time has come to ______ you One more time Let me _____ you Close your eyes I´ll be on my ____ Dream about the days to come When I won´t have to leave alone _______ the time when I don´t have to say........ [Chorus]
