I agree with Mr. Devore, but there is a possibility that you may have arguable abandoned your green card. Have you returned to the US? You really need an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney.
This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
You need to return to the U.S. and re-apply and wait to be fingerprinted-- you will get either one year or two depending on how many years you have been out of the U.S. You still need to show your intent to make the U.S. your home by filing U.S. tax returns and not as a non-resident.
