Artist: Paolo Nutini
Song: Auld lang syne
Tabbed by: DJ
23rd Dec 2012

Tuning:Standard

This is based on Paolo Nutini's intimate BBC4 performance at this link:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/robertburns/works/auld_lang_syne/

Apart from some little embellishments, it's said to be closer to the original 1788 tune,
which Robert Burns based his lyrics on, than the more common tune sung on New years Eve.

In the video, Paolo misses out the second and fourth of Robert Burns verses,
but I've included them all here.
