Jet Airliner

Leaving home, out on the road
Ive been down before
Riding along in this big ol jet plane
Ive been thinking about my home
But my love light seems so far away
And I feel like its all been done
Somebody's trying to make me stay
You know Ive got to be moving on

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
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
Riding 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 its here that Ive got to stay

Touching down in new england town
Feel the heat coming down
Ive got to keep on keeping on
You know the big wheel keeps on
spinning around
And I'm going 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 going down in the city

Big ol jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Cause its here that Ive got to stay

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Cause its here that Ive 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 its here that Ive got to stay

Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Carry me to my home
Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
Cause its there that I belong
