                      Born at the Right Time ( Paul Simon )

                    From The Rhythm of the Saints album, 1990
                   ( Live version from "MTV Unplugged", 1992 )
              



Transcribed and tabbed by Jean-Marc Orliaguet
( jmo@fy.chalmers.se, http://fy.chalmers.se/~jmo )



Notes :  Capo 5th fret

 This live version is slightly different from the studio track :
         it starts with the chorus, and the intro is more finger-picked ...

         The stressed notes are marked with a > sign, and the mute notes 
         with an x.
