Lindisfarne - Born At The Right Time


CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO:] C   G   C   G   C

[VERSE 1:]
                               G                           C
Young men's hope are dashed to Hell, it's hard to earn a dime
                                           G                                 Am
They're kicking their heels, revving their wheels, searching for better times
                        G
Me, I'm kicking into my prime
                                 C    G   C
'Cause I was born at the right time


[VERSE 2:]
                              G                              C
Old men's thoughts are in the past, their future holds no store
                                 G                         Am
Their lives are left in tatters, fighting someone else's war
                       G
I wasn't party to that crime
                                 C
'Cause I was born at the right time


[CHORUS:]
                             G
Now I'm living on the coastline
                        C
I got up from the breadline
                            F
Now I'm drinking the good wine
                          C
Go fishing in the summertime
                            G
Sleep all day if I have a mind
                                 C    G
'Cause I was born at the right time
                               C
Yes, I was born at the right time


[INSTRUMENTAL:] C    Am  G  C    Am  G  C    Am  G  F    F C F C G    C


[VERSE 3:]
                        G                                     C
I want no part of being young, don't want the wisdom of a sage
                                  G                              Am
While there are songs still to be sung, new words to grace the page
                        G
A better age I'll never find
                                 C
'Cause I was born at the right time


[CHORUS:]
                                 G
And now I'm living on the coastline
                        C
I got up from the breadline
                            F
Now I'm drinking the good wine
                          C
Go fishing in the summertime
                            G
Sleep all day if I have a mind
                                 C    G   Am
'Cause I was born at the right time


[BRIDGE:]
                                F                    Am
And so while wishing that we'll all see better days
                          F             G  Am
My secret feeling is, I'm happy in my ways
         G                  F
An inner smile comes on me, thinking of the past
    C
But I won't sigh for days gone by
Am               G  C
Now is where I'm at___


[INSTRUMENTAL:] C      Am  G  C    Am  G  C    Am  G  F    F C F C G    C


[CHORUS:]
                                 G
And now I'm living on the coastline
                        C
I got up from the breadline
                            F
Now I'm drinking the good wine
                          C
Go fishing in the summertime
                            G
Sleep all day if I have a mind
                                 C
'Cause I was born at the right time


[CHORUS:]
                                   G
And now I'm sleeping on the coastline
                        C
I got up from the breadline
                            F
Now I'm drinking the good wine
                          C
Go fishing in the summertime
                            G
Sleep all day if I have a mind
                                 C     G
'Cause I was born at the right time
                          C     G
I was born at the right time
                          C     G
I was born at the right time
                              C
And I was born at the right time
