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   &
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/simon_paul/the_boy_in_a_bubble_btab.html ]
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-------|

Chorus. Repeat this riff 4 times :

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

and then the following post-chorus bit twice:

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

G|------------7---5---------------|--------------------------------|
