Verse:---------------------------------------------------
 C5           F5(Part 2 riff) C5 
1.Leavin' home, out on the road
F5(part 1&2)     C5
I've been down before

Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane
          Bb         F       C5           
I've been thinkin' about my home

(By this point you could use full bar chords or keep the 5ths)

C5
But my love light seems so far away
       Bb           F         C5          
And I feel like it's all been done
C5         
Somebody's tryin' to make me stay
               Bb       F     C
You know I've got to be movin' on

Chorus:----------------------------------------------------
....      Bb    F       C
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Bb              F       C      
Don't carry me too far away
          Bb    F       C      
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
            Bb             F      (Intro riff)
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Verse:-----------------------------------------------------
 C5                F5(1/2 riff) C5 
2.Goodbye to all my friends at home
F5            C5
Goodbye to people I've trusted

I've got to go out and make my way
 Bb         F       C5  
I might get rich you know I might get busted
C5
But my heart keeps calling me backwards
 Bb           F         C5 
As I get on the 707
C5
Ridin' high I got tears in my eyes
            Bb       F  
You know you got to go through hell
         C
Before you get to heaven

Chorus:---------------------------------------------------
....      Bb    F       C
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Bb              F       C      
Don't carry me too far away
          Bb    F       C      
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
            Bb             F      (Intro riff)   
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Verse:----------------------------------------------------
  C5        F5(1/2 riff) C5
3.Touchin' down in New England town
 F5                  C5
Feel the heat comin' down
C5
I've got to keep on keepin' on
 Bb           F         C5 
You know the big wheel keeps on spinnin' around
C5
And I'm goin' with some hesitation
        Bb      F         C5 
You know that I can surely see
C5
That I don't want to get caught up in any of that
 Bb       F     C
Funky shit goin' down in the city

Chorus:---------------------------------------------------
....      Bb    F       C
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Bb              F       C      
Don't carry me too far away
          Bb    F       C      
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
            Bb             F      
Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Chorus:---------------------------------------------------
....      Bb    F       C
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Bb              F       C      
Don't carry me too far away
          Bb    F       C      
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
            Bb             F      
Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Chorus:---------------------------------------------------
....      Bb    F       C
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Bb              F       C      
Don't carry me too far away
          Bb    F       C      
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
            Bb             F      
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Surprised I got voted with a 3 star on this one. It's one of my fav. tabs to play. Thought it was dead on. Still do.

I agree - 5 stars, is 100% correct. Other tabs have Eb's and Bm's here and there, what's with that? Obviously the poster is one of the rare players who has actually played their tab against the song before posting :)
