        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.

VERSE
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


CHORUS

 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

 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

VERSE
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

 But down among the  reeds and rushes
E    A  E    A   E     A   E   A
 A baby girl was found

 Nothing denied to

 Born at the instant
G                     D
 The church bells chi-ime
A                        G
 And the whole world whispering

 Born at the right time
