                      ALMOST HOME    Craig Morgan

He had plastic bags wrapped round his shoes He was covered with the evening news
Had a pair of wool socks on his hands
The banks sign was flashing five below It was freezin rain and spittin snow
He was curled up behind some garbage cans
C                                C#                F
I was afraid that he was dead I gave him a gentle shake
 C                                C#              D#
When he opened up his eyes I said old man are you ok  He said

n.c.                        A#m                                     G# 
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree I was running from some honey bees
                     A#m                              D#
Drip-drying in the summer breeze After jumpin into Calico Creek
                     A#m                                         G#
I was walkin down an old dirt road Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
                           A#m       D#  n.c.                G#   Intro lick   
Man I wish you'd just left me alone      Cause I was almost home

Then he said I was just comin round the barn Bout the time you grabbed my arm
I heard momma holler son hurry up
I was close enough for my own nose To smell fresh cobbler on the stove
I saw daddy loadin up the truck
C                                     C#
Gate post on the tailgate cobbler's blowin in the wind
        C                    C#            D#  
Since July of  55 that's as close as I've been Yea

Go to  chorus
D#                                                   C#               G#
I said old man you're gonna freeze to death Let me drive you to the mission
        C#                               D# 
He said boy if you'd left me alone Right now I'd be fishin

Go to chorus chorus

G#                         A#m      D#                G#  ending guitar lick
Man I wish you'd just left me alone     I was almost home
