I was watching Craig at a concert and on a video on you tube 
He plays it without a capo and he doesn't use The B chord.
Instead He uses an Em Chord. I haven't seen any tabs for this 
song that have it with the Em so I thought I'd post it. 
Its tuned up to G#. I don't like re-tuning my guitar so I just 
use the capo on the first fret with standard tuning.

       C
He had plastic bags wrapped round his shoes
C
He was covered with the evening news
      G     D              G               
Had a pair of wool socks on his hands

         C
The bank sign was flashing five below
C
It was freezin' rain and spittin' snow
       G          D             G
He was curled up behind some garbage cans

:Bridge:
Em                             C
I was afraid that he was dead, I gave him a gentle shake
Em                                   C         D
When he opened up his eyes I said, Old man are you ok, He said

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

C
Then he said, I was just comin' round the barn,
C
Bout the time you grabbed my arm
  G           D           G
I heard momma holler son hurry up

C
I was close enough for my own nose
C
To smell fresh cobbler on the stove
G           D             G
I saw daddy loadin' up the truck

:Bridge:
Em                                  C
Cane poles on the tailgate, bobbers blowin' in the wind
      Em                  C           D
Since July of 55, that's as close as I've been,

(Chorus)
Yea
D                         C
I just climbed out of the cotton wood tree
C                       G
I was running from some honey bees
G                  C
Drip-drying in the summer breeze
C                  D
After jumpin' into Calico Creek
D                   C
I was walkin' down an old dirt road
C                          G              
Past a field of hay that had just been mowed
Em                      C
Man I wish you'd just left me alone
D                G
Cause I was almost home

  Em
I said old man you're gonna freeze to death,
       C
Let me drive you to the mission
        Em
He said boy if you'd left me alone
      C        D2 D
Right now I'd be fishin'

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

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

Good song thanks for the tab.
-ledouxit | 1/16/2009
I seen that video too. Or one of them. I liked the way you added that little riff in the middle of the song. Thnx for that. I havent seen anyone else put that in their tabs for this song yet, and the Em really sounds better instead of the B chord. That's just my opinion. Your doing great work. Keep it up!
