Africa

Toto

 BD#mG#m
 I hear the drums echoin tonight
 BAC#mG#mAC#m
 She has only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion
 BD#mG#mB
 She's coming in twelve thirthy flight   the moolight winds
 AC#m7G#mAC#m
     Reflect the stars that guide me toward salva-tion 
 BD#mG#m
 I stopped an old man along the way
 BAC#mG#mAC#m
 Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melo-dies
 BD#7G#mAC#m
 He turned to me as if to say  hurry boy it's waiting there for you
 F#mDAE
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
 F#mDAE
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do       MTM
 F#mDAE
     I bless the rains down in   Africa
 F#mDAC#mEF#mAC#m
     Gonna take some time to do the things we neve had   

 BD#mG#m
 The wild dogs cry out in the night
 BAC#mG#mAC#m
 As they grow restless longing for some solitary compa-ny  
 BD#mG#m
 I know that I must do what's right
 BAC#mG#mAC#m
 Sure as kilimangiaro rises like olimpus above the seranget-ti  
 BD#7G#m
     I seek to cure what's deep inside
 G#mAC#m
 Frightened of this thing that I've become
 F#mDAE
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
 F#mDAE
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
 F#mDAE
     I bless the rains down in   Africa
 F#mDAC#mEF#mAC#m
     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

B D#m G#m B A C#m G#m A ^ C#m
 BD#7G#mAC#m
                hurry boy it's waiting there for you
 F#mDAE
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
 F#mDAE
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
 F#mDAE
     I bless the rains down in   Africa (REPEAT X4)
 F#mDAC#mEF#mAC#m
     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

venjeff (report comment to admin):
This is an excellent transcription. I find that transposing it -4 semitones and playing those resultant chords with a capo on 4th Fret is easier and gives it a "punchiness", that doesn't change the key for vocals.
