Born At The Right Time Chords – Paul Simon V2

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.

Capo 3rd fret

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

 A baby boy was found

 His eyes as clear  as centuries

 His silky hair was brown

 Never been lonely

 Never been lied to

 Never had to scuffle in fear

 Nothing denied to

 Born at the instant

 The church bells chi-ime
 A G 
 And the whole world whispering
