Jet Airliner Lyrics

by Steve Miller Band

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

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 707
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 us 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 kicks 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
