Song Author Paul Pena Lyrics by: Paul Pena Performer: Steve Miller Band Submitted by: gilsi
[C]Leavin' home, [F]out on the [C]road
[F]I've been down be[C]fore
Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane
I've been [F]thinkin' about my [C]home
But my love light seems so far away
And I [Bb]feel like it's [F]all been [C]done
Somebody's tryin' to make me stay
You know I've [Bb]got to be [F]movin' [C]on  

[C]Oh, Oh [Bb]big ol' j[F]et airl[C]iner
D[Bb]on't carry me t[F]oo far aw[C]ay  
Oh, Oh b[Bb]ig ol' j[F]et airl[C]iner
Cause it's h[Bb]ere that I've g[F]ot to s[C]tay  

[C]Goodbye to all my [F]friends at [C]home
Good[F]bye to people I've [C]trusted
I've got to go out and make my way
I might [F]get rich you know I might get [C]busted
But my heart keeps calling me backwards
As I [Bb]get on the [F]Seven-O-[C]Seven
Ridin' high I got tears in my eyes
You know you [Bb]got to go through [F]hell
Before you [C]get to heaven

[Bb]Big ol' [F]jet air[C]liner
[Bb]Don't carry me [F]too far a[C]way  
Oh, Oh [Bb]big ol' [F]jet air[C]liner
Cause it's [Bb]here that I've [F]got to [C]stay

[C]Touchin' down in New [F]England [C]town
[F]Feel the heat comin' [C]down
I've got to keep on keepin' on
You know the [F]big wheel keeps on [C]spinnin' around
And I'm goin' with some hesitation
You know that [Bb]I can [F]surely [C]see  
That I don't want to get caught up in any of that
[Bb]Funky [F]shit goin' [C]down in the city

[Bb]Big ol' [F]jet air[C]liner
[Bb]Don't carry me [F]too far a[C]way  
Oh, Oh [Bb]big ol' [F]jet air[C]liner
Cause it's [Bb]here that I've [F]got to [C]stay

[C]Oh, Oh [Bb]big ol' [F]jet air[C]liner
[Bb]Don't carry me [F]too far a[C]way

Leavin' home, out on the road
I've been down before
Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane
I've been thinkin' about my home
But my love light seems so far away
And I feel like it's all been done
Somebody's tryin' to make me stay
You know I've got to be movin' on

Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Goodbye to all my friends at home
Goodbye to people I've trusted
I've 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 Seven-O-Seven
Ridin' high I got tears in my eyes
You know you got to go through hell
Before you get to heaven

Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Touchin' down in New England town
Feel the heat comin' down
I've got to keep on keepin' on
You know the big wheel keeps on spinnin' around
And I'm goin' with some hesitation
You know that I can surely see
That I don't want to get caught up in any of that
Funky shit goin' down in the city

Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's here that I've got to stay

Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Carry me to my home
Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
Cause it's there that I belong

Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
