        Born at the Right Time - Paul Simon
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Paul Simon
Born at the Right Time (1989)
(Paul Simon)

From: "The Rhythm of the Saints"

I used the “Original Acoustic Demo” (a bonus track on the 2011 
remaster of the album) for this tab. This recording only features 
Simon singing and strumming an acoustic guitar. But chords, rhythm 
and tuning also fit to the full version.

Capo 3rd fret

Whatever your strumming pattern may be, make sure to include the following
pattern:

D     G D    G   D      G   D A
 Down a-mong the  reeds and rushes
E    A  E    A  E     A   E   A
 A baby boy was found
Em                 Em       D     A
 His eyes as clear  as centuries
D       G  D    G   D      G   D A
 His silky hair was brown

D               A
 Never been lonely
G                D
 Never been lied to
A                        G
 Never had to scuffle in fear
D               G
 Nothing denied to
D              A
 Born at the instant
G                     D
 The church bells chi-ime
A                        G
 And the whole world whispering
D                  G
 Born at the right time

D       G  D              G   
 Me and my buddies we are travelling people
D        G     D       A         | E  A E  A| E  A E  A|
 We like to go down to restaurant row
Em
 Spend those Euro-dollars
Em                D      A    D     G D G  D  G D A 
 All the way from Washington   to Tokyo-oh-oh
  D   G    D  G   D  G    D   A
I see them in the airport lounges
E     A     E    A   E     A   E   A
 Upon their mother's breast
Em              Em         D     A
 They follow me  with open eyes
D        G D G   D      G   D A
 Their uninvited guest

D               A
 Never been lonely

 Never been lied to

 Never had to scuffle in fear

D            G          D            G   
 Too many people on the bus from the airport
D         G     D       A          | E  A E  A| E  A E  A|
 Too many holes  in the crust of the earth
Em
 The planet groans
Em             D    A    D   G    D  G  D    G   D A
 Every time it registers  another bi-ir-irth

     D    G D   G   D      G   D A
 But down among the  reeds and rushes
E    A  E    A   E     A   E   A
 A baby girl was found
Em                 Em       D     A
 Her eyes as clear  as centuries
D       G  D    G   D      G   D A
 Her silky hair was brown

 Born at the right time
