Bought a used 94 chevy 1500 truck - no leaks at house or after we test drove it.drove it home and about an hour later noticed a leak under the truck seems to be coming from the middle of the truck where the drive shaft connects

Gulp!
Get thee to an independent transmission specialist, a.s.a.p.

Don’t go to AAMCO, Lee Myles, Cottman, Mr. Transmission or any other chain operation unless you want to be told that you need a new transmission, even if only minor repairs are actually necessary.

The driveshaft slips into the transmission through the “tailshaft seal”, an inexpensive part relatively easy to replace. If you are parking nose high, that will compound the problem…
