don't rely on it... ;)

[A]I hear the drums [Dbm]echoing ton[Gbm]ight
[A]But she hears only [G]whispers of some q[Bm]uiet conve[Gbm]rsatio[G]n  [Gbm]    [Bm]
[A]She's coming in 1[Dbm]2:30 flight[Gbm]
[A]The moonlit wings r[G]eflect the stars t[Bm]hat guide [Gbm]me tow[G]ard[Gbm]s sa[Bm]lvation
[A]I stopped an old [Dbm]man along t[Gbm]he way
[A]Hoping to find some[G] long forgotten wo[Bm]rds or anc[Gbm]ient m[G]elo[Gbm]dies[Bm]
G* Bm G* Bm
He turned to me as if to say, ''Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you''

(this is me agreeing with adam... kinda)

[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 [C]rains down in [G]Afr--[D]ica
Em C G Bm D Em G Bm <--kinda tricky
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had Listen & you'll
know what I
G* Bm G* Bm mean
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
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become


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 Afr--ica

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had


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 Afr--ica
I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa,
I passed some rains down in Africa

I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
