[C]Met my old lover in a [Am]grocery store[G]    
[C]The snow was falling Christmas [Am]Eve   [G]    
[C]Stole behind her in the [Am]frozen foods
and I[D7] touched her on the [F]sleeve[G]    

[C]She didn't recognize the [Am]face at first[G]    
[C]but then her eyes flew open [Am]wide   [G]    
[C]Tried to hug me and she [Am]spilled her purse
and we [D7]laughed until we [F]cried[G]    

[C]Took her groceries to the [Am]checkout stand[G]    
[C]The food was totaled up and [Am]bagged[G]    
[C]stood there lost in our em[Am]barrassment
as the [D7]conversation [F]dragged[G]    

[C]Went to have ourselves a [Am]drink or two
[C]but couldn't find an open [Am]bar   
[C]Bought a six-pack at the [Am]liquor store
and we [D7]drank it in the [F]car  [G]    

[Am]We drank a toast to [F]innocence,
we [G]drank a toast to [Am]now   
[Am]Tried to reach beyond the [F]emptiness
but [G]neither one knew how

[C]She said she'd married her an [Am]architect[G]    
[C]Kept her warm and safe and [Am]dry   [G]    
[C]She said she'd like to say she [Am]loved the man
but she [D7]didn't want to [F]lie  [G]    

[C]I said the years had been a [Am]friend to her[G]    
[C]and that her eyes were still as [Am]blue   [G]    
[C]But in those eyes I wasn't [Am]sure if I
saw [D7]doubt or grati[F]tude[G]    

[C]She said she saw me in the [Am]record store[G]    
[C]and that I must be doing [Am]well   [G]    
[C]I said the audience was [Am]heavenly
but the [D7]traveling was [F]hell[G]    

[Am]We drank a toast to [F]innocence
we [G]drank a toast to [Am]time   
[Am]We're living in our [F]eloquence,
[G]another old lang syne

[C]The beers were empty and our [Am]tongues grew tired[G]    
[C]and running out of things to [Am]say   [G]    
[C]She gave a kiss to me as I got [Am]out   
and I [D7]watched her drive a[F]way  [G]    

[C]Just for a moment I was [Am]back in school[G]    
[C]And felt that old familiar [Am]pain   [G]    
[C]And as I turned to make my way back [Am]home   
the [D7]snow turned into [F]rain[D]    [F]    [D]    

Met my old lover in a grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
Stole behind her in the frozen foods
and I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first
but then her eyes flew open wide
Tried to hug me and she spilled her purse
and we laughed until we cried

Took her groceries to the checkout stand
The food was totaled up and bagged
stood there lost in our embarrassment
as the conversation dragged

Went to have ourselves a drink or two
but couldn't find an open bar
Bought a six-pack at the liquor store
and we drank it in the car

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

She said she'd married her an architect
Kept her warm and safe and dry
She said she'd like to say she loved the man
but she didn't want to lie

I said the years had been a friend to her
and that her eyes were still as blue
But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I
saw doubt or gratitude

She said she saw me in the record store
and that I must be doing well
I said the audience was heavenly
but the traveling was hell

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

The beers were empty and our tongues grew 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 rain
