Toto - África 

Intro: Bb Bb - Dm Dm

C C Em Em Am Am
I hear the drums echoing tonight

C C Bb Bb Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb - Dm Dm
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation

C C Em Em Am Am
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
C C Bb Bb Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb - Dm Dm
The moonlight rings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

C C Em Em Am Am
I stopped an old man along the way
C C Bb Bb Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb - Dm Dm
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
C C E7 E7 Am Am C C Bb Bb Dm Dm
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

Gm Gm Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Gm Gm Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Gm Gm Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gm Gm Eb Eb Bb Bb Dm Dm - F F - Gm Gm-F F
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Bb Bb - Dm Dm

(The same chord progression is used for the second verse: The wild dogs cry out in the night...)
