Song Lyric Sunday – Seasons/Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall

This is one of my favorite song’s.  Same Auld Lang Syne by Dan Folgerberg…Here’s the real story behind the song, and it’s true which makes it all that much better and I’ll like it more when I hear it again ❤

Happy Song Lyric Sunday and Happy Easter/Happy Spring ❤  Today’s prompt is…Seasons/Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall  given to us by Mr. Jim
Same Old Lang Syne
Met my old lover in the grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stood 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
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried
We took her groceries to the check out stand
The food was totaled up and bagged
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
As the conversation lagged
We went to have ourselves a drink or two
But couldn’t find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
And we drank it in her car
We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to now
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
But neither one knew how
She said she’s married her an architect
Who kept her warm and safe and dry
She would have liked to say she loved the man
But she didn’t like to lie
I’m sure we all have a story like this one.  That’s probably why it was in the top ten for so long, besides the fact that he was an amazing storyteller and songwriter/musician ❤  Gone too soon.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not.
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
  • Ping back to this post will eventually work, as long as you are being patient, but you can also place your link in the comments if you don’t like to wait.
  • Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
  • Feel free to suggest future prompts.
  • Have fun and enjoy the music.
