Africa

6 6 6 6 6 6-6 -7 7
i hear the drums echoing tonight
5 5 5 -56 6 -5 -5
but she hears only whispers of
5 -4 -4 4 5-4 4-4
some quiet conversation
6 6 6 6 6 -6-7 7
she`s coming in twelve thirty flight
5 5 5 -5 6 6 -5 -5
her moonlit wings reflect the stars
5 -4 -4 -4-4 4 5-4 4-4
that guide me towards salvation
6 6 6 6 6 6-6 -7 7
i stopped an old man along the way
5 5 5 -5 6 6 -5-5 5 -4
hoping to find some old forgotten words
4 -4 4 5-4 4-4
or ancient melodies
6 6 6 6 6 -6 -7 7
he turned to me as if to say
5 5 -5 6 6-5 -5 5 -5
hurry boy its waiting there for you

(chorus:)
7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 -7 -7
its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
theres nothing that a hundred men
7 7 7 7-7 -7
or more could ever do
4 4 4 -6 -6 -6 -6 6 6
i bless the rains down in africa
7 7 7 7 7 7 7
gonna take some time to do
7 7 7 7-7 -7-6 6-7 7-6-5 5 4
the things we never had

the wild dogs cry out in the night
as they grow restless,longing for
some solitary company
i know that i must do whats right
sure as kilimanjaro rises like olympus
above the serengeti
i seek to cure whats deep inside
frightened of this thing that i`ve become.

(repeat chorus)

hurry boy its waiting there for you.

(repeat chorus).
