Jet Airliner
In seat forty-two, just about to go insane
I've been down before
Riding along in this big jet plane
I've been thinking about jumping out the door
'Cause my homeland is so far away
And I feel like it's all been done
Somebody's trying to make me stay
And I've got to be on the run

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

I've been sitting by the fireside
Wondering where my strength is going
Looking through the mirror of life
Trying to find out which way the wind's blowing
But my heart keeps pushing me backwards
As I jump aboard that 747
Riding high, but with a tear in my eye
You got to go through hell before you get to heaven

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

Oh, I know I will
I'm gonna leave on my own this time

Big old jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Big old jet airliner
Here that I've got to stay

Touching down in New England
Feel the heat coming down
First thought is "Lord, I said I'd be there"
But I couldn't seem to quite get it down
'Cause I'm going with some hesitation
I've got to go and make my way
But there's so many people, Lord, to talk to
And a whole lot of debts to pay

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

Goodbye to old friends at home
Goodbye to willing friends I've trusted
I've got to go out and make my way
I might get rich and I might get busted
But I'm going, Lord, with so many things to clean up
I've got to make my way clear before me
But I don't want to get mixed up
In any of that funky shit that's going down before me

Ooh, big old jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Big old jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
They're trying to pull me away
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Big old jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Big old jet airliner
'Cause it's California where I've got to stay

Ooh, big old jet airliner
