"Airline To Heaven" as written by and Jeffrey Scott/bennett Tweedy....
There's an airline plane
Flies to heaven everyday
Past the pearly gates

If you want to ride this train
Have your ticket in your hand
Before it is too late

If the world looks wrong
And your money's spent and gone
And your friend has turned away

You can get away to heaven
On this aeroplane
Just bow your head and pray

Them's got ears, let them hear
Them's got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Take this airline plane
It'll take you home again
To your home behind the skies

Well a lot of people guess
Some say no and some say yes
Will it take some and leave some behind?

But you will surely know
When to the airport go
To leave this world behind

Oh a lot of speakers speak
A lot of preachers preach
When you lay their salary on the line

You hold your head and pray
It's the only earthly way
You can fly to heaven on time
Fly to heaven on time

Them's got ears, let them hear
Them's got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Take that airline plane
It'll take you home again
To your home behind the skies

Your ticket you obtain
On this heavenly airline plane
You leave your sins behind

You've got to take this flight
It may be daytime, might be night
But you can't see your way if you're blind

Them's got ears, let them hear
Them's got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Take that airline plane
It'll take you home again
To your home behind the skies

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs. Recently, I've been thinking it's about the catholic church and how fucked up it is. Like that one priest who raped the 200 deaf boys. I think he needed an airline to heaven.

    "Them's got ears, let them hear
    them's that don't get raped in the rear"

    I think it is really sad. The catholic church spent something like 540 or 740 million dollars to cover it up. Stop supporting the catholic church. This is just my opinion. The gay manifesto said the other money the church rakes in (aside from the $ to hide all of the scandals) just goes to those "fancy hats". I agree.

    Gotta love Tweedy.

    General CommentThese are Woody Guthrie lyrics, not Tweedy's.
