[B]I hear the drums ech[D#m]oin toni[G#m]ght

     [A]Reflect the stars that [C#m7]guide me toward sa[G#m]lva-ti[A]on [C#m]
[B]I stopped an ol[D#m]d man along the [G#m]way
[B]Hoping to find some [A]old forgotten [C#m]words of ancient [G#m]melo-d[A]ie[C#m]s
[B]He turned to me[D#7] as if to [G#m]say  hurry boy it's [A]waiting there for[C#m] you
     [F#m]Gonna take a l[D]ot to drag me aw[A]ay from [E]you

     [F#m]Gonna take some [D]time to do the t[A]hings we [C#m]neve[E]r [F#m] had [A]  [C#m]
[B]The wild dogs cry [D#m]out in the n[G#m]ight
[B]As they grow [A]restless longing for [C#m]some solitary c[G#m]ompa-n[A]y  [C#m]
[B]I know that[D#m] I must do what's [G#m]right
[B]Sure as kilimangiaro r[A]ises like o[C#m]limpus above the sera[G#m]nget-t[A]i  [C#m]
     [B]I seek to [D#7]cure what's deep i[G#m]nside
[G#m]Frightened of this t[A]hing that I've b[C#m]ecome
     [F#m]Gonna take a[D] lot to drag m[A]e away f[E]rom you
     [F#m]There's nothing that a[D] hundred men o[A]r more could e[E]ver do

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.
