Capo 2nd fret
Intro:  G  Bm | G  Bm | G  Bm | G  Bm

A                 C#m       F#m 
 I hear the drums echoing tonight
F#m/E          G                Bm          F#m  G   Bm 
She hears only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion 
A             C#m               F#m 
 She's coming in, twelve thirty flight
    F#m/E           G                    Bm                  F#m  G   Bm 
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salva - tion
A             C#m               F#m 
 I stopped an old man along the way
F#m/E               G             Bm               F#m G   Bm 
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies 
A             C#m         F#m 
 He turned to me as if to say
F#m/E           G                    Bm 
Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you

Em                 C               G        D 
 It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Em                      C              G               D 
 There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Em           C             G   D 
 I bless the rains down in Africa
Em               C              G               Bm     D    Em     D   G      Bm
 Gonna take some time to do the things we never had                oo, ooo

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 Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had, oo, ooo

A  C#m  F#m  A   G   Bm   F#m    G   Bm
A  C#m  F#m  F#m/E            G                 Bm
             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, oo, ooo
