A class at my school played this song for our concert and I really liked it (well I'd already heard it before but they brought it back to my memory) so here it is, John Denver's original Leaving on a Jet Plane.

Kay, I'm REALLY sorry about the actual "jet" planes. I was looking at the other airplane pictures but they all seemed really lame but the military ones looked interesting. They had better backgrounds. anyway. So yeah, no disrespect. I didn't mean to get all accidentally political on you guys...
(wiki) "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. This song would later have a large significance in his life as a plane crash would take his life in the 1990's.
