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




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

(go to chorus)

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          Dsus4 / D
Right now I'd be fishin

(chorus) 2x's


man I wish you'd just left me alone

I was almost home
