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 b[D]ehind some garbage[G] cans
[Bm]I was afraid that he was dead
I [C]gave him a gentle shake
When he[Bm] opened up his eyes
I said [C]"Old man, are you[D] ok"

He said
(let the D chord resonate)
Chorus
"I just climbed out of a[C] cotton wood tree[Cadd9]
I was running from some [G]honey bees
Drip drying in the [C]summer breeze
After jumping into [D]Calico Creek
I was walking down some [C]old dirt road   [Cadd9]
Past a field of hay that had[G] just been mowed    [Em]
Man, I wish you'd just left [C]me alone
[D]Cause, I was almost [G]home"

Intro line:
He said, "[C]I's just coming round the barn

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
[Bm]Cane poles on the tailgate
Bobbers [C]blowing in the wind
Since[Bm] July of '55
That's as [C]close as I've [D]been
CHORUS
"I just climbed out of [C]a cotton wood tre[Cadd9]e
I was running from some [G]honey bees
Drip drying in the [C]summer breeze
After jumping into [D]Calico Creek
I was walking down some [C]old dirt road   [Cadd9]
Past a field of hay that had[G] just been mowed    [Em]
Man, I wish you'd just left [C]me alone
[D]Cause, I was almost [G]home"


Bridge
I said, [Bm]"Old man you're gonnaÂ’ freeze to death
Let me[C] drive you to the mission"
He said,[Am] "Boy, if you'd left me alone
[C]right now, I'd be [D]fishin'"
"I just climbed out of [C]a cotton wood tre[Cadd9]e
I was running from some [G]honey bees
Drip drying in the [C]summer breeze
After jumping into [D]Calico Creek
I was walking down some [C]old dirt road   [Cadd9]
(G)(pick notes G F#)(Em)
Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
Man, I wish you'd just left [C]me alone
[D]Cause, I was almost[G] home"

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

Outro same as intro, strum a G chord to end
