JOE DIFFIE


Almost Home Lyrics

he had plastic bags wrapped around his shoes
he was covered with the evening news
had a pair of old wool socks on his hands
the bank sign was flashin five below
it was freezing rain and spitting snow
he was curled up behind some garbage cans
i was afraid that he was dead i gave him a gentle shake
when he opened up his eyes i said old man are you okay
he said

Chorus:
i just crawled out of a cottonwood tree
i was runnin from some hunny bees
drip dryin in the summer breaze after jumpin into calico creek
i was walkin down an old dirt road
past a field of hay that had just been mowed
man i wish youd just left me alone
cuase i was almost home

and he said i was just comin round the barn
bout the time you grabbed my arm
and i heard mama holler son hurry up
and i was close enough for my own nose to smell fresh cobbler on the stove
and i saw daddy loadin up the truck
cane poles on the tailgate bobbers blowin in the wind
since july of 55 thats as close as ive been

Chorus:
yeah i jus climbed out of a cottonwood tree
i was runnin from some hunny bees
drip dryin in the summer breaze
after jumpin into calico creek
i was walkin down a old dirt
past a field of hay that had just been mowed
man i wish youd just left me alone
i was almost home

i said old man your gonna freeze to death let me drive you to the mission
he said boy if youd left me alone rite now id be fishin

Chorus:
i just climbed out of a cottonwood tree
i was runnin from some hunny bees
drip dryin in the summer breaze
after jumpin into calico creek
i was walkin down an old dirt road
past a field of hay that had just been mowed
man i wish youd just left me alone

man i wish youd just left me alone... i was almost home
i was almost home
