Same Old Lang Syne  Dan Fogelberg

        [C-Am-D7/F#-F-G-]                             

Me[C]t my old lover in a groce[Am]ry store
Th[C]e snow was falling Christmas eve [Am]
I [C]stole behind her in the froze[Am]n foods
And I touc[D7/F#]hed her on her sleev[FM7]e    [G]
Sh[C]e didn't recognize the face[Am] at first
Bu[C]t then her eye flew open wide[Am]
Sh[C]e went to hug me and she spill[Am]ed her purse
And we laugh[D7]ed until we crie[FM7]d.   [G]

Interlude: (Do intro chords)


Sh[C]e took her groc'ries to the check[Am]-out stand
Th[C]e food was totaled up and bagg[Am]ed
We[C] stood there lost in our embarr[Am]assment
As the conve[D7]rsation dragg[FM7]ed    [G]
We[C]nt to have ourselves a drin[Am]k or two
Bu[C]t couldn't find and open bar[Am]
Bo[C]ught a six-pack at the liquo[Am]r store
And we dr[D7]ank it in her [FM7]car.[G]
Refrain:
W[Am]e drank a toast to innoc[F]ence
We drank[G] a toast to now[Am]
W[Am]e tried to reach beyond the empti[F]ness
But neith[G]er 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.
Sh[C]e said she saw in the reco[Am]rd stores
An[C]d that I must be doin[Am]g well
I [C]said the audience was heav[Am]enly
But the tra[D7]velling was [F]hell.


Refrain:
[Am]We drank a toast to inno[F]cence
We drank[G] a toast to now[Am]
W[Am]e tried to reach beyond the empti[F]ness
But neith[G]er one knew how.
We[Am] drank a toast to innoc[F]ence,
We dr[G]ank a toast to [Am]time.
R[Am]eliving in our eloque[F]nce
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
The snow turned into [FM7/G-G]rain.


Outro: CM7-Dm6-CM7-F-G,
