Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Africa  Howie Day

[A]I hear the drums [C#m]echoing t[F#m]onight
[A]She hears only [G]whispers of some [Bm]quiet conve[F#m]rsations [G]   [Bm]
[A]She's coming in [C#m]twelve- thirty[F#m] flight
T[A]he moonlit winds [G]reflect the stars that [Bm]guide me toward s[F#m]alvation  [G]  [Bm]
[A]I stopped an [C#m]old man along the [F#m]way
[A]Hoping to find some o[G]ld forgotten [Bm]words or ancient [F#m]melodies [G]  [Bm]
[A]He turned to me[C#m] as if to [F#m]say Hurry boy it's [G]waiting there for y[Bm]ou


[Em]It's gonna take[C] a lot to drag me[G] away from [D]you
[Em]There's nothing that a [C]hundred men or [G]more could ever [D]do
[Em]I bless the r[C]ains down in [G]Afric[D]a
[Em]Gonna take some [C]time to do the [G]things we never  h[Bm]ad [D]  [Em]    [G]  [Bm]

[A]The wild dogs [C#m]cry out in the[F#m] night
[A]As they grow restless [G]longing for some [Bm]solitary c[F#m]ompany  [G]  [Bm]
[A]I know that I[C#m] must do what's [F#m]right
[A]Sure as Kilimangiaro r[G]ises like O[Bm]lympus above the Se[F#m]rangetti[G]  [Bm]
[A]I seek to cur[C#m]e what's deep in[F#m]side
Frightened of this [G]thing that I've become[Bm]
