He had [C]plastic bags wrapped round his shoes
[C]He was covered with the evening news
Had a [G]pair o[D]f wool socks on[G] his hands
The bank [C]sign was flashing five below
[C]It was freezin' rain and spittin' snow
He was [G]curled up b[D]ehind some gar[G]bage cans
:Bridge:
[Em]I was afraid that he was dead, [C]I gave him a gentle shake
[Em]When he opened up his eyes I said, Ol[C]d man are [D]you ok, He said

(Chorus)
I just climbed out of the [C]cotton wood tree
[C]I was running from some [G]honey bees
[G]Drip-drying in the [C]summer breeze
[C]After jumpin' into [D]Calico Creek
[D]I was walkin' down a[C]n old dirt road
[C]Past a field of hay that ha[G]d just been mowed
[Em]Man I wish you'd just le[C]ft me alone
[D]Cause I was almos[G]t home

[C]Then he said, I was just comin' round the barn,
[C]Bout the time you grabbed my arm
I [G]heard momma [D]holler son h[G]urry up

[C]I was close enough for my own nose
[C]To smell fresh cobbler on the stove
[G]I saw daddy [D]loadin' up the[G] truck
:Bridge:
[Em]Cane poles on the tailgate, bobbers [C]blowin' in the wind
Since [Em]July of 55, that's a[C]s close as I[D]'ve been,

(Chorus)
Yea
[D]I just climbed out of the [C]cotton wood tree
[C]I was running from some [G]honey bees
[G]Drip-drying in the [C]summer breeze
[C]After jumpin' into [D]Calico Creek
[D]I was walkin' down a[C]n old dirt road
[C]Past a field of hay that ha[G]d just been mowed
[Em]Man I wish you'd just le[C]ft me alone
[D]Cause I was almos[G]t home

[D]I said old man you're gonna freeze to death,
Let me [Em]drive you to the mission
He said [C]boy if you'd left me alone
Right [D]now I'd b[D2]e f[D]ishin'

(Chorus)
[D]I just climbed out of the [C]cotton wood tree
[C]I was running from some [G]honey bees
[G]Drip-drying in the [C]summer breeze
[C]After jumpin' into [D]Calico Creek
[D]I was walkin' down a[C]n old dirt road
[C]Past a field of hay that ha[G]d just been mowed
[Em]Man I wish you'd just le[C]ft me alone
[D]Cause I was almos[G]t home

[Em]Man I wish you'd just left m[C]e alone[D]
[D]I was almost [G]home
