        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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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