Airline to Heaven

Billy Bragg & Wilco - Mermaid Ave. Vol II.


I was pretty shocked and disappointed there was no tab for this song, it's such a great
 This might not be correct the way Jeff plays it but it sounds decent to me.  At the
least it's better than no tab at all.  If you don't strum at least similar to the real 
this will sound like crap.

 The rhythm is pretty easy to figure out, just play along.  The verses and choruses are
only point the rhythm guitar changes, and you pretty much just use half as many chord
everything slows down in that sense.

Enjoy!

These are the correct chords, but to play the right voicing go capo 3 and play C F and G instead. It's easier to get the fast C-F strum pattern that way too.
