Almost Home Lyrics
He was covered with the evening news
Had a pair of old wool socks on his hands
The bank sign was flashing "5 below
It was freezing rain an' spittin' snow
He was curled up behind some garbage...

I think it means that life is hard now and when he was a child life was simple . Maybe war tore him into the place he is now. Maybe loosing his parents in 55 ?
I don't think he is dying .
I think because I can relate , that remembering when life was easy helps . It gets him through.
His situation sucked and he just wanted to be left alone to go home when he was a boy , to a time where life was good.

I think the old man was homeless and wanted to be left alone so he could pass away and go home (heaven) and he would be fishing with a loved one that has passed on aswell.

I always thought that the homeless man was a veteran trying to remember life before the war.

He dreaming about home when he was starting to die and he wished that he hadn't woke him up so he would die dreaming while going to heaven.

I believe the song had a double meaning. Due to the fact the man was homeless, he had dreams of home wishing he could go there.The other meaning is that he old man truly was freezing to death and remembering his younger years, note "Haven't been that close since '55" it is him reflecting on his life and family. If he would have made it home in his dream, he would have passed on and gone "home" (heaven or whatever is your religions heaven-like place"
