Almost Home Lyrics

He had plastic bags wrapped 'round his shoes
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's about he was dying and a guy was saving him but when he says he's almost home it's heaven bc heaven is made up of the things you love most in your past life so i think is he was almost to heaven

    I just think he was remembering a time before he became homeless.

    I believe that it means that a young man was trying to help him on a cold night and he was dreaming about the good life and going home as a kid

    Amazing song!
    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"

    This song is about a young man trying to help an old homeless man on a freezing cold night. The old man tells him to leave him alone because he was having visions of his old home and to leave him to die.
