Subject: Craig Morgan.......ALMOST HOME

ALMOST HOME
(Craig Morgan)
 
[Key of C#]
 

He had (C#) plastic bags wrapped 'round his shoes
He was covered with the evening news
Had a (G#) pair of old wool (D#)socks on his (G#)hands
The bank (C#) sign was flashing 5 below
It was freezing rain and spitting snow
He was (G#) curled up be(D#)hind some garbage (G#) cans
(Fm) I was afraid that he was dead
I (C#) gave him a gentle shake
(Bbm) When he opened up his eyes
I said (C#) "man, are you o(D#)k"
 
He said
"I just climbed (G#/C) out of a (C#) cotton wood tree (C#add9)
I was running from some (G#) honey bees
Drip (G#/C) drying in the (C#) summer breeze
After jumping into (D#) Calico Creek
I was walking (G#/C)  down some (C#) old dirt road (C#add9)
Past a field of hay that had (G#) just been mowed (Fm)
Man, I wish you'd (G#/C) just left (C#) me alone
(D#) Cause, I was almost (G#) home"
 
He said, (C#)" I's just coming round the bar
Bout the time you grabbed my arm
When (G#) I heard mama (D#) call - son hurry (G#) up
I was (C#) close enough for my old nose
To smell fresh copper on the stove
And (G#) I saw daddy (D#) loading up the (G#) truck
(Fm) Cane poles on the tailgate
Bobbers (C#) blowing in the wind
Since (Bbm) July of '55
That's as (C#) close as I've (D#) been
 
"I just climbed (G#/C) out of a (C#) cotton wood tree (C#add9)
I was running from some (G#) honey bees
Drip (G#/C) drying in the (C#) summer breeze
After jumping into (D#) Calico Creek
I was walking (G#/C)  down some (C#) old dirt road (C#add9)
Past a field of hay that had (G#) just been mowed (Fm)
Man, I wish you'd (G#/C) just left (C#) me alone
(D#) Cause, I was almost (G#) home"
 
I said, (Fm) "Old man you're gonna freeze to death
Let me (G#) drive you to the mission"
He said, (Bbm) "boy, if you'd left me alone
Right (C#) now, I'd be (D#) fishin'"
 
"I just climbed (G#/C) out of a (C#) cotton wood tree (C#add9)
I was running from some (G#) honey bees
Drip (G#/C) drying in the (C#) summer breeze
After jumping into (D#) Calico Creek
I was walking (G#/C)  down some (C#) old dirt road (C#add9)
Past a field of hay that had (G#) just been mowed (Fm)
Man, I wish you'd (G#/C) just left (C#) me alone
(D#) Cause, I was almost (G#) home"
(Fm) Man, I wish you'd (G#/C) just left (C#) me alone (D#)
I was almost (G#) home
