" 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, 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, 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..............."
I grew up on Peter, Paul & Mary. My kids grew up listening to Peter, Paul & Mary. We play their music for our grand-children to listen to.
Mary passed away yesterday. We were fortunate to have seen them in concert several times. I can remember as a little girl singing their songs and especially, "Leaving on a Jet Plane". I loved their harmony. Their folk style was so rare and special. My hubby's favorite way to relax is listening to all of their hits while lying back in his lazy boy. I can hear my hubby right now, singing "Puff the Magic Dragon", "If I had a Hammer", "The Answer is Blowing in the Wind"......so many wonderful songs....Thanks Mary, we will miss you!
