AFRICA - TOTO

                             A | C#m || x4

B                D#m7      G#m
I hear the drums echoin' tonight
[ch]G#m/F#[/ch]         A/E              E/F#        E/G# A   C#m
She hears only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion
B            D#m7             G#m          [ch]G#m/F#[/ch]
She's coming in twelve thirty flight   the moonlit wings
       A/E                  E/F#               E/G#   A  C#m
     Reflect the stars that guide me toward salva-tion
B            D#m7              G#m
I stopped an old man along the way
[ch]G#m/F#[/ch]              A/E            E/F#            E/G# A  C#m
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melo-dies
B            D#m7        G#m                 A                   C#m
He turned to me as if to say  hurry boy it's waiting there for you
   F#m            D               A        E
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
   F#m                      D              A               E
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do       
   F#m           D               A   E
     I bless the rains down in   Africa
   F#m               D              A                C#m E F#m E/G# A C#m
     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

B             D#m7           G#m
The wild dogs cry out in the night
   [ch]G#m/F#[/ch]             A/E              E/F#     E/G#  A  C#m
As they grow restless longing for some solitary compa-ny
B           D#m7             G#m
I know that I must do what's right
        [ch]G#m/F#[/ch]      A/E         E/F#             E/G#    A  C#m
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serenge-ti
     B         D#m7               G#m
     I seek to cure what's deep inside
G#m                 A                   C#m
Frightened of this thing that I've become
   F#m            D               A        E
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
   F#m                      D              A               E
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
   F#m           D               A   E
     I bless the rains down in   Africa
   F#m               D              A                C#m E F#m E/G#  A C#m
     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

B   D#m7  G#m  G#m            A                  C#m
               hurry boy it's waiting there for you
   F#m            D               A        E

     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

Notes: The chords are correct, I spent years playing the wrong bass notes before 
learning them.
I've changed the line "she has only whispers" to "she hears" because it makes more 
sense. Official lyrics have "she has". Enjoy.
