Capo 1st fret

[Verse 1]
C
He had plastic bags wrapped round his shoes
C
He was covered with the evening news
G                 D             G               
Had a pair of wool socks on his hands

C
The banks sign was flashing five below
C
It was freezin rain and spittin snow
G                D              G
He was curled up behind some garbage cans

[Bridge]
B                                 C
I was afraid that he was dead, I gave him a gentle shake
B                                   C                D
When he opened up his eyes I said, Old man are you  ok , He said

[Chorus]
                                 C
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
                               G
I was running from some honey bee's
                          C
Drip-drying in the summer breeze
                          D
After jumpin into Calecoe Creek
                         C
I was walkin down an old dirt road
                             G             G/F#
Past a field of hey that had just been mowed
Em                    C
Man I wish you'd just left me alone
D                  G
Cause I was almost home

[Verse 2]
Then he said, I was just comin round the barn,
Bout the time you grabbed my arm
I heard momma holler son hurry up

I was close enough for my own nose
To smell fresh cobbler on the stove
I saw daddy loadin up the truck

[Bridge]

cane poles on the tailgate, bobbler's blowin in the wind
since July of  55, that's as close as I've been, Yea

[Chorus]
                                 C
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
                               G
I was running from some honey bee's
                          C
Drip-drying in the summer breeze
                          D
After jumpin into Calecoe Creek
                         C
I was walkin down an old dirt road
                             G             G/F#
Past a field of hey that had just been mowed
Em                    C
Man I wish you'd just left me alone
D                  G
Cause I was almost home

[Bridge]
D
I said old man you're gonna freeze to death,
       Em
Let me drive you to the mission
        C
He said boy if you'd left me alone
      D          Dsus / D
Right now I'd be fishin

[Chorus]
                                 C
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
                               G
I was running from some honey bee's
                          C
Drip-drying in the summer breeze
                          D
After jumpin into Calecoe Creek
                         C
I was walkin down an old dirt road
                             G             G/F#
Past a field of hey that had just been mowed
Em                    C
Man I wish you'd just left me alone
D                  G
Cause I was almost home

                                 C
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
                               G
I was running from some honey bee's
                          C
Drip-drying in the summer breeze
                          D
After jumpin into Calecoe Creek
                         C
I was walkin down an old dirt road
                             G             G/F#
Past a field of hey that had just been mowed
Em                    C
Man I wish you'd just left me alone
D                  G
Cause I was almost home


man I wish you'd just left me alone
I was almost home
