 C
He had plastic bags wrapped round his shoes
 C
 He was covered with the evening news
 GDG
Had a pair of wool socks on his hands

 C
The bank sign was flashing five below
 C
 It was freezin' rain and spittin' snow
 GDG
He was curled up behind some garbage cans

:Bridge:
 EmC
 I was afraid that he was dead, I gave him a gentle shake
 EmCD
 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
 CG
 I was running from some honey bees
 GC
 Drip-drying in the summer breeze
 CD
 After jumpin' into Calico Creek
 DC
 I was walkin' down an old dirt road
 CG
 Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
 EmC
 Man I wish you'd just left me alone
 DG
 Cause I was almost home

 C
 Then he said, I was just comin' round the barn,
 C
 Bout the time you grabbed my arm
 GDG
heard momma holler son hurry up

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

:Bridge:
 EmC
 Cane poles on the tailgate, bobbers blowin' in the wind
 EmCD
Since July of 55, that's as close as I've been,

(Chorus)
Yea
 DC
 I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
 CG
 I was running from some honey bees
 GC
 Drip-drying in the summer breeze
 CD
 After jumpin' into Calico Creek
 DC
 I was walkin' down an old dirt road
 CG
 Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
 EmC
 Man I wish you'd just left me alone
 DG
 Cause I was almost home

 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
 DD2D
Right now I'd be fishin'

(Chorus)
 DC
 I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
 CG
 I was running from some honey bees
 GC
 Drip-drying in the summer breeze
 CD
 After jumpin' into Calico Creek
 DC
 I was walkin' down an old dirt road
 CG
 Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
 EmC
 Man I wish you'd just left me alone
 DG
 Cause I was almost home

 EmCD
 Man I wish you'd just left me alone 
 DG
 I was almost home
