Howie Day – Africa Live tab

I'm just finishing what Adam started.  Hopefully I'm not too far off.

Just like in the original by Todo, there is a motif-like 
part which is basically the intro to the song.  Through 
the second line of a verse he goes into it if you listen.
I'll just put this three chord part in parenthesis and then 
it's just a matter of getting the rhythm down.
