Same Old Lang Syne

Dan Fogelberg

 C-Am-D7/F#-F-G-

 CAm
Met my old lover in a grocery store
 CAm
The snow was falling Christmas eve  
 CAm
stole behind her in the frozen foods
 D7/F#FM7G
And I touched her on her sleeve     
 CAm
She didn't recognize the face at first
 CAm
But then her eye flew open wide 
 CAm
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
 D7FM7G
And we laughed until we cried.    

Interlude: (Do intro chords)

 CAm
She took her groc'ries to the check-out stand
 CAm
The food was totaled up and bagged
 CAm
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
 D7FM7G
As the conversation dragged     
 CAm
Went to have ourselves a drink or two
 CAm
But couldn't find and open bar 
 CAm
Bought a six-pack at the liquor store
 D7FM7G
And we drank it in her car. 

Refrain:
 AmF
We drank a toast to innocence
 GAm
We drank a toast to now 
 AmF
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
 G
But neither one knew how.

(2nd Verse Chords)
She said she married her an architect
Who kept her warm and safe and dry
She would've liked to say she loved the man
But she didn't like to lie.
I said the years had been a friend to her
And her eyes was still as blue
But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I
Saw a doubt of gratitude.
 CAm
She said she saw in the record stores
 CAm
And that I must be doing well
 CAm
said the audience was heavenly
 D7F
But the travelling was hell.

Refrain:
 AmF
 We drank a toast to innocence
 GAm
We drank a toast to now 
 AmF
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
 G
But neither one knew how.
 AmF
We drank a toast to innocence,
 GAm
We drank a toast to time.
 AmF
Reliving in our eloquence
G pause
Another "auld lang syne."

(2nd Verse Chords)
The beer was empty and our tongues were tired
And running out of things to say
She gave a kiss to me as I got out
And I watched her drive away
Just for a moment I was back in school
And felt that old familiar pain
And as I turned to make my way back home
 FM7/G-G
The snow turned into rain.

Outro: CM7-Dm6-CM7-F-G,
 F-G-Bb7-CM7
