Cheers,

The Boy in a Bubble (Graceland albumn) by Paul Simon
Bassist Baghiti Khumalo.

Transcribed by David Cobby . Please send 
any corrections or comments. The timing I've indicated is totally 
approximate, but fairly easy to pick up from the actual song.


Intro.  Rest for 4 bars of accordian intro then repeat the following twice :   

  1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &    1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &

G|2-2-----0-0-1--2--2-------------|-------------------------------0|
D|----2-2-------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------3---5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|


Verse 1. Only difference from Intro is the slide up in the first bar. 
        Repeat twice :

  1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &    1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &

G|2-2-----0-0-/4-2--2-------------|-------------------------------0|
D|----2-2-------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------3---5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|


Chorus. Repeat this riff 4 times :

  1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &    1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &

G|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------5|--------------------------------|
A|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-\3-5-5----|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5------/|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

and then the following post-chorus bit twice:

  1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &    1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &

G|------------7---5---------------|--------------------------------|
D|/7------------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------33--5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|


Verse 2. Same as intro riff repeated twice.
Chorus. As above, including the 4 bars of post-chorus stuff.
Verse 3. Same as verse 1.
Chorus. Without the 4 bars of post-chorus. Repeat to fade.
