 C           F          C       
Leavin home, out on the road

    F              C
Ive been down before

C         C         C        C
Ridin along in this big ol jet plane

           F             C
Ive been thinkin about my home

C         C         C        C
But my love light seems so far away

      D#       C
And I feel like its all been done

C          C         C       C
Somebodys tryin to make me stay

D#           C
You know Ive got to be movin on


D#         C
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner

D#          C
Dont carry me too far away

D#         C
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner

D#          C
Cause its here that Ive got to stay

Goodbye to all my friends at home
Goodbye to people Ive trusted
Ive got to go out and make my way
I might get rich you know I might get busted
But my heart keeps calling me backwards
As I get on the 707
Ridin high I got tears in my eyes
You know you got to go through hell
Before you get to heaven


Touchin down in new england town
Feel the heat comin down
Ive got to keep on keepin on
You know the big wheel keeps on spinnin around
And Im goin with some hesitation
You know that I can surely see
That I dont want to get caught up in any of that
Funky shit goin down in the city

Chorus 2 times

This song rocks but you need to play Bb instead of D#, at least I would. I'd have to hear the record again. A hard song to play for a tone-deaf guitarist like me!
