[Intro]

G  F C
D  F C


[Verse 1]
G                   F           C
Injili, Injili, can I sing with you?
D                   F                C
'Bout Mr. Tembo and what he's got to do
G                               F        C
But first I'm going back to the Colworth Road
D                       F                 C
To find the mission and help him with his load


[Chorus]

G                  F          C
Mr. Tembo's on his way up the hill
D                      F               C
With only this song to tell you how he feels
G                         F              C
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned


[Verse 2]

G                  F              C
Injili, Injili, we will sing with you
D                   F           C
Just like the TV in Mr. Tembo's room
G                          F                 C
Off the emphatic night, he checked in on his own
D                   F           C
At Mkombozi Inn and made it his home


[Chorus]

G                  F          C
Mr. Tembo's on his way up the hill
D                      F               C
With only this song to tell you how he feels
G                         F              C
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned


[Interlude]

G  F C
D  F C


[Verse 3]

G                  F            C
Injili, Injili, we will sing to you
D                   F               C
'Bout Mr. Tembo and what he's going through
G                            F       C
Gets up early while you are still in bed
D                F              C
Mr. Tembo, green blanket by his head


[Chorus]

G                  F          C
Mr. Tembo's on his way up the hill
D                      F               C
With only this song to tell you how he feels
G                         F              C
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned


[Interlude]

(keep rhythm)

G
Hey, you keep those lions off the front of the boat!
F              C
Good god, man! Have you some cotton in your ears?!
D                          F           C
I'm trying to run this expedition in a decent manner!
G                                          F             C
Logistics, haulage, gulf, bungalow, spice, canals, cows, hay bales
D                             F              C
Telegraph wires, pylon power, farmhouse over chimneys still used
G                                    F               C
Stone, satellites, football pitches, faded flags and lots of dogs
     D                                      F              C
Neon cross on top of a block of flats and a church, not as usual


[Chorus]

G                  F          C
Mr. Tembo's on his way up the hill
D                      F               C
With only this song to tell you how he feels
G                         F              C
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
D                            F              C
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
