Leaving on a Jet Plane – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

John Denver wrote “Leaving on a Jet Plane” in 1967 when he was a member of the Chad Mitchell Trio. The group recorded it but it wasn’t successful until released two years later by Peter, Paul & Mary, when it went to #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100, making it PPM’s biggest hit and their last song on the chart. I played it in the key of G and the song only uses 3 chords (G, C, and D).
