Almost Home2-crd  Craig Morgan

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
I was afraid that he was dead
I [C]gave him a gentle shake
When he[am] opened up his eyes
I said[C] "man, are you[D] ok"

He said

"I just climbe[G/C]d out of a[C] cotton wood tree[Cadd9]
I was running from some [G]honey bees
[G/C]Drip drying in the [C]summer breeze
After jumping into [D]Calico Creek
I was walkin[G/C]g down some[C] old dirt road   [Cadd9]
(G) (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"

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
Cane poles on the tailgate
Bobbers [C]blowing in the wind
Since[am] July of '55
That's as [C]close as I've [D]been

I said, "Old man you're gonna’ freeze to death
Let me[G] drive you to the mission"
He said,[am] "Boy, if you'd left me alone
[C]right now, I'd be [D]fishin'"

(em) (G/C) (C) (D)
Man, I wish you'd just left me alone
I was almost [G]home

I have to give thanks to "Christopher R"
for the original submission. I
took his work and simplified it a bit. This should be
much easier than all the sharps and flats in the
original submission. Hope you like it…this is a great
