Jet Airliner
seraphimangel2000@yahoo.com


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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oh, Oh big ol jet airliner,
Carry me to my home.
Oh, Oh big ol jet airliner,
Cause it's there that I belong.back to top
Winter Time
(Steve Miller)

In the winter time
When all the leaves are brown
And the wind blows so chill
And the birds have all flown for the summer
I'm callin', hear me callin', hear me callin'

In the winter time
When all the leaves are brown
And the wind blows so chill
And the birds have all flown for the summer
I'm callin', hear me callin', hear me callin'
I'm callin', hear me callin', hear me callin'
In the winter time

In the winter time
When all the leaves are brown
And the wind blows so chill
And the birds have all flown for the summer

True Fine Love
STEVE MILLER BAND
TRUE FINE LOVE


I ain't complainin'
But I'd sure like to find me
A true, fine love
Someone another
That's as sweet as your mother
A true, fine love.

Cause the time is right
For walking in the moonlight
I have suddenly found I'm ready to settle down
So come on get your rocks off
I'm gonna knock your socks off.

You'll see, oh yeah
So come on pretty baby
We're going to raise a family.

There'll be no hesitatin'
Cause I'm so tired of waitin'
For a true, fine love
Someone another
Like a sister or brother
A true, fine love.

Cause the time is right
For walking in the moonlight
I have suddenly found I'm ready to settle down
So come on get your rocks off
I'm gonna knock your socks off.

You'll see, oh yeah
So come on pretty baby
We gonna raise a family.

Well I ain't complainin'
But I'd sure like to find me
A true, fine love
Someone another
That's as sweet as your mother
A true, fine love.

Cause the time is right
For walking in the moonlight
I have suddenly found I'm ready to settle down
We'll have a boy for you, we'll have a girl for me
Come on baby raise a family.

So come on get your socks off.
I'm gonna knock your rocks off.back to top
Wish upon a Star
(Steve Miller)

Close your eyes
Rest your head
Let your spirits rise
Sleepy head
Rest your mind
It's been well fed
You can be what you want to

And it doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you are
If you wish upon a star
If you wish upon a star

And it doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you are
If you wish upon a star
If you wish upon a star

Close your eyes
Say goodnight
Hug your lover
Real tight
Let your dreams
Into your heart
Let your dreams take flight

And it doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you are
If you wish upon a star
If you wish upon a star

It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you are
If you wish upon a star
If you wish upon a star

It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you are
If you wish upon a star
If you wish upon a starback to top
Jungle Love
This song isn't as popular as some SMB songs, but still good......
this is my first tab but I think it's mostley right.


1st verse

I met you on somebodys island
you thought you had known me before
I brought you a crate of papia
Then waited all night at your door
You probably wouldn't remember
I probably couldn't forget
Jungle love in the surf, in the poring rain
Everythings better when wet

chorus

Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, its makin' me crazy
Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, its makin' me crazy


2nd verse

But latley you've lived in the jungle
I never see you alone
But we need some definate answers
so i thought i'd write you a poem
The question to everyones answer
Is usually ask from within'
But the patterns of the rain
And the truth they contain
Have written my life on your skin

chorus

Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy (crazy)
Jungle love! It's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy


3rd verse

You treat me like I was your ocean
You swim in my blood when it's warm
My cycles a circular motion
Protects you and keeps you from harm
You live in a world of illusion
Where everythings peaches n' cream
We all face a scarlet conclusion
But we spend our time in a dream

chorus/outro

Jungle love! it's driven' me mad, it's makin' me crazy (crazy) <---(4x)back to top

Sacrifice
(Curley Cooke and Les Dudek)

Thought about the folks back home
All those miles that we had roamed
Still can see your pretty hair
When I come back will you be there
You flew away like a kite
I hope you find your light
I pray they treat you right
What a sacrifice

Miles and miles I have roamed
Lookin' for that home sweet home
Thought I had the love with you
But I found out that you weren't true
You made me feel so nice
Ready for wedding rice
Then you said no dice
What a sacrifice

Lookin' back on time that's gone
I realized I might have been wrong
But Macon took you for a ride
They broke us up for their own pride
But you were young and didn't understand
That you had found your lifetime man
Maybe someday you'll see
It gets so lonely being free
So don't be wrong twice
What a sacrificeback to top
The Stake
(David Denny)

Burnin' burnin' all you can take
Wheels are turning in the bed you make
I'll take you over, you're tied at the stake
Nobody loves you like the way I do

Light rain's over
The sun's all around
Four leaf clover
As I pull you down
I'll take you over
You're tied at the stake
Nobody loves you like the way I do
Nobody loves you like the way I do
Nobody loves you like the way I doback to top
My Own Space
(Jason Cooper and Bobby Winkleman)

Sittin' high on a hillside takin' in all the growth
Time to throw away my problems
Cause I made 'em up myself
So I took all those worries, put 'em up on a shelf
And headed on down to the sea shore

Clouds slowly passin' as I walked on the sand
I picked up a seashell and I made up my plan
I could feel the spirit of life in my hand
As I reached my destiny

Whoa ho ho ho oh oh oh whoa
I feel free
Whoa ho ho ho oh oh oh whoa
Where I can have my own space

I walked on the beach in the early morn
I ran on the sand till I could breathe no more
I stood on a rock looking out at the sea
And believed what I said when I said
I feel free

Whoa ho ho ho oh oh oh whoa
I feel free
Whoa ho ho ho oh oh oh whoa
Where I can have my own spaceback to top
Babes in the Wood
