Same Old Lang Syne

Dan Fogelberg

 CAmGCAmG
 Met my old lover in a grocery store The snow was falling Christmas Eve 
 CAmD7FG
 Stole behind her in the frozen foods and I touched her on the sleeve 
 CAmGCAmG
 She didn't recognize the face at first but then her eyes flew open wide 
 CAmD7FG
 Tried to hug me and she spilled her purse and we laughed until we cried 

piano break - same chords as verse

 CAmGCAmG
 Took her groceries to the checkout stand The food was totaled up and bagged 
 CAmD7FG
 stood there lost in our embarrassment as the conversation dragged 
 CAmCAm
 Went to have ourselves a drink or two but couldn't find an open bar
 CAmD7FG
 Bought a six-pack at the liquor store and we drank it in the car 

 AmFGAm
 We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now
 AmFG
 Tried to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew how

 CAmGCAmG
 She said she'd married her an architect Kept her warm and safe and dry 
 CAmD7FG
 She said she'd like to say she loved the man but she didn't want to lie 
 CAmGCAmG
 I said the years had been a friend to her and that her eyes were still as blue 
 CAmD7FG
 But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw doubt or gratitude 
 CAmGCAmG
 She said she saw me in the record store and that I must be doing well 
 CAmD7FG
 I said the audience was heavenly but the traveling was hell 

chorus
 AmFGAm
 We drank a toast to innocence we drank a toast to time
 AmFG
 We're living in our eloquence, another old lang syne

 CAmGCAmG
 The beers were empty and our tongues grew tired and running out of things to say 
 CAmD7FG
 She gave a kiss to me as I got out and I watched her drive away 
 CAmGCAmG
 Just for a moment I was back in school And felt that old familiar pain 
 CAmD7FDFD
 And as I turned to make my way back home the snow turned into rain

I'm playing this with a standard 4 finger pattern (bass note, 1 3 2). Anyone else have suggestions on what pattern to use?
