The words are by, I believe, Robert Burns.  Please check me on this.  Some
English poet, anyway.  I ain't an English major.  I don't know who
originally set it to music, but here goes:

Auld Lang Syne

       F                C7
Should old acquaintance be forgot
    F                Bb
And never brought to mind
      F                C7
Should old acquaintance be forgot
A   Dm   Gm7     C7   F
And days of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o'kindness yet
And days of auld lang syne

The original poem has another verse, but nobody ever sings it. 

Special bonus (because I don't want to go back to studying yet): Melody tab

e-----------5---------5------5--8--10--10--8--5-5----------5------------
b---6--5-6-----8-6-8-----6-6----------------------6--8-6-8---6-------6--
g-5------------------------------------------------------------7-7-5----


e-10--8--5-5-----------10--8--5-5--8--10--10--8--5-5---------5----------
b------------6--8-6-8--------------------------------6-8-6-8---6-------6
g----------------------------------------------------------------7-7-5--

Play with a wah-wah and very heavy distortion; it sounds cool, really.

Happy new year to you all; I'm going home for break (assuming I survive
exams), so I shan't be posting for a while (now, now, don't get too
upset).

Corrections, improvements, good karma welcome as always.

Alec

Thanks, Alec. Yes, to be sure Robbie Burns is Scotland's most famous poet and songwriter. Auld Lang Syne's original melody is different than what is often played these days. To hear a beautiful rendition to the original melody, take a listen to The Barra MacNeil's version on their Christmas Album cd.
