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

C C Bb Bb Dm Dm A A 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 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 Em7 Em7 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
Bb Bb - Dm Dm

C C Em Em Am Am
The wild dogs cry out in the night
C C Bb Bb Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb - Dm Dm
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
C C Em7 Em7 Am Am C C Bb Bb - Dm Dm
I know that I must do what's right
C C Bb Bb Dm Dm Am Am Bb Bb - Dm Dm
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
C C Em7 Em7 Am Am C C Bb Bb - Dm Dm
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

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

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

I bless the rains down in Africa

About this song: Africa

The song was included on their 1982 album Toto IV, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1983 and number three on the UK Singles Chart the same month. The song was written by the band's keyboardist David Paich, who also sings both verses of the song, and drummer Jeff Porcaro. Bobby Kimball sings the chorus.The song almost cut from the Toto IV record prior to its release. Having spent an incredible amount of time producing the tune, the band became so tired of the song that they didn’t want it on the album. Read more on Last.fm.
