Lyrics and Chords

[As recorded by Steve Miller]

Leavin' home, out on the road
I've been down before
Ridin' along on this big ol' jet plane
I've been thinkin' about my home

/ C - F C / F - C - / - - - - / F - C - / 

But my love light seems so far away
And I feel like it's all been done
Somebody's try'n' to make stay
You know, I've got to be movin' on, oh

/ C - - - / Bb F C - / - - - - / Bb F C - / 

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

/ Bb F C - / / / /

Good bye to all my friends at home
Good bye 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 callin' me backwards
As I get on the seven-oh-seven
Ridin' high, I got tears in my eyes
You know, you got to go through hell before you get to heaven


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 a-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


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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