Keyboard intro : A G#m C#m

   I hear the  drums  echoin'   tonight.
 She hears only whispers of some quiet conversation.
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.
   He turn to me as if to say, "Hurry, boy, it'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,
    Gonna take some time to do 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 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.
