Is the word order in sentence an error?

David K

I am confused that the second clause is ordered "habe aber."  Should the conjunction "aber" come first then followed by the verb which should be in second position?
 
Ich bin in Stuttgart geboren, habe aber die meiste Zeit meines Lebens in Hamburg gelebt.
I'm was born in Stuttgart, but lived most of my life in Hamburg.

So I'm thinking the correct sentence should be::
Ich bin in Stuttgart geboren,  aber habe die meiste Zeit meines Lebens in Hamburg gelebt.

Danke Schon
