Africa  Toto

Keyboard intro : A G#m C#m

[B]  I hear the  drums  [D#m7/Bb]echoin'   to[G#m7]night.
[B/F#]She hears only [A/E]whispers of some [E/F#]quiet conver[Emaj7/G#]sation.
She's coming in, twelve-thirty flight.
Moonlight wings reflect the stars, that guide me toward salvation.
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words, or ancient melodies.
[B]  He turn to [D#m7/Bb]me as if to [G#m7]say, "Hurry, boy, it's [A]waiting there for you."

[F#m]   It's gonna take a [D]lot to drag me [A]away from [E]you,
[F#m]   There's nothing that a [D]hundred men or [A]more could ever [E]do.
[F#m]   I bless the [D]rains down in [A]Afri[E]ca,
[F#m]   Gonna take some [D]time to do the [A]things we never [C#m]had. [E]    [F#m]       [E/G#]         [A]

The wild dogs cry out in the night.
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company.
I know that I must do what's right,
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.
I seem to cure what's deep inside,
Frightened of this thing that I've become.


Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you.,
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa,
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa,
I bless the rains down in Africa, Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
