Capo
2nd fret
Airline to Heaven
Billy Bragg & Wilco - Mermain Avenue Volume 2 [2000]
Tabbed by deemen

This is a great song with very few tabs. I did this by ear and looking at a few videos 
it's far from perfect, but it should get you started.

This song is played with a capo on the 2nd fret. The chords can be played without Capo 
the main riff is pretty much impossible to play without it (at least I haven't found a 
way)

Main Riff (Capo 2)
|-e---|---2--3p2---2p0--------|
|-B---|--(3)----------3--3p0--|
|-G---|---------------------2-|
|-D---|-0---------------------|
|-A---|-----------------------|
|-E---|-----------------------|

Chords (respectively):
With Capo:    D  G  A
             -2--3--0-|
             -3--3--2-|
             -2--0--2-|
             -0--0--2-|
             -x--2--0-|
             -x--3--x-|

Without Capo: E  A  B
             -0--0--2-|
             -0--2--4-|
             -1--2--4-|

Intro: Main Riff + D G D G

D                  G
There's an airline plane
D        G             D
Flies to heaven everyday
G               D        G
Past the pearly gates

D   G

D                            G
If you want to ride this train
D         G                 D
Have your ticket in your hand
  G              D       G
Before it is too late

D   G

D                      G
If the world looks wrong
D        G                 D
And your money's spent and gone
         G                 D    G
And your friend has turned away

D   G

D                   G
You can get away to heaven
D       G                D
On this aeroplane
     G                 D     G
Just bow your head and pray

D   G

D              D              G  G
Them's got ears, let them hear
D              D              A  A
Them's got eyes, let them see
D         D           G           G           D
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

G                 D
Take this airline plane
D                 G      D    A  A  A
It'll take you home again
D                           G
To your home behind the skies

D   G   D   G
D   G   D   G

-- Repeat --

Well a lot of people guess
Some say no and some say yes
Will it take some and leave some behind?

But you will surely know
When to the airport go
To leave this world behind

Oh a lot of speakers speak
A lot of preachers preach
When you lay their salary on the line

You hold your head and pray
It's the only earthly way
You can fly to heaven on time
Fly to heaven on time

Them's got ears, let them hear
Them's got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Take that airline plane
It'll take you home again
To your home behind the skies

Your ticket you obtain
On this heavenly airline plane
You leave your sins behind

You've got to take this flight
It may be daytime, might be night
But you can't see your way if you're blind

Them's got ears, let them hear
Them's got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Take that airline plane
It'll take you home again
To your home behind the skies

It's in drop D, so the riff is like an octave lower, on the A/D strings I think.
