Vintage Jet Plane Oil Painting

Vintage jet plane oil painting or hit song in 1969. A little of both because I think of that song when I see this oil painting. John Denver wrote Leaving on a Jet Plane back in 1966. It was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1967 and released as a single in 1969. It turned out to be their biggest hit becoming their only number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. But I bet that you didn’t know that the original title of the song was Babe, I Hate to Go. It was changed by John Denver’s producer and obviously was the right decision. And I have to agree because any time that I’m leaving on a jet plane it’s a good thing. Unfortunately, I think John Denver had something different in mind.

All my bags are packedI’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 morning.

The taxi’s waiting. He’s blowing 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. Because I’m leaving on a jet plane.

Don’t know when I’ll be back again. Oh babe, I hate to go.
