Africa by Quietdrive Guitar Chords

[Intro]
Gm------/F--D#----- (4x)

[Verse 1]
A#                F/A      Gm
I hear the drums echoing tonight
             Cm               A#/D         D#-- F
But she only whispers of some quiet conversation
A#                 F/A  Gm
She's coming on a 12:30 flight
                    Cm                   A#/D            D#-- F
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me to salvation
A#            F/A              Gm
I stopped an old man along the way
               Cm             A#/D              D#-- F
Hoping to find some forgotten words or ancient melodies
A#            F/A        Gm
He turned to me as if to say,
                  Cm                A#/D  -  D#  -  F
"Hurry boys, it's waiting there for you!"

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

Gm------/F--D#----- (2x)

[Verse 2]
A#             F/A           Gm
The wild dogs cry out in the night
             Cm                A#/D      D#--  F
As they grow restless for some solitary company
A#           F/A             Gm
I know that I must do what's right
                  Cm         A#/D            D#-- F
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises up of the Serengeti
A#         F/A               Gm
I seek to cure what's deep inside,
                   Cm                A#/D - D# - F
Frightened by this thing that I've become

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