Artist: Paolo Nutini
Song: Auld lang syne
Lyrics: Robert Burns
Music: Traditional
Tabbed by: DJ
23rd Dec 2012

This transcription is based on Paolo Nutini's BBC4 performance. 
The video is at this link:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/robertburns/works/auld_lang_syne/

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

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