[Intro]

A   Dbm   x4


[Verse 1]

B                   Ebm     Abm
I hear the drums echoin tonight
B               A             Dbm         Abm   A  Dbm
She has only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion
B                Ebm           Abm          B
She's coming in twelve thirthy flight   the moolight winds
A                      Dbm7              Abm   A  Dbm
Reflect the stars that guide me toward salva-tion
B              Ebm             Abm
I stopped an old man along the way
B                   A             Dbm              Abm   A Dbm
Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melo-dies
B              Eb7       Abm                 A                Dbm
He turned to me as if to say  hurry boy it's waiting there for you


[Chorus]

Gbm           D               A       E
Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Gbm                     D             A             E
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do       
Gbm          D              A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm             D               A        Dbm E Gbm  A Dbm
Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had


[Verse 2]

B                 Ebm         Abm
The wild dogs cry out in the night
B            A                    Dbm            Abm   A  Dbm
As they grow restless longing for some solitary compa-ny
B          Ebm               Abm
I know that I must do what's right
B                     A          Dbm                  Abm   A  Dbm
Sure as kilimangiaro rises like olimpus above the seranget-ti
B         Eb7               Abm
I seek to cure what's deep inside
Abm                 A               Dbm
Frightened of this thing that I've become


[Chorus]

Gbm         D             A       E
Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Gbm                   D             A             E
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm           D              A        Dbm E Gbm  A Dbm
Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had


[Interlude]

B   Ebm   Abm   B   A   Dbm   Abm    A   Dbm


[Bridge]

B  Eb7  Abm             A              Dbm
          hurry boy it's waiting there for you

[Outro/Chorus]

Gbm         D             A       E
Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Gbm                   D             A             E
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm        D             A   E
I bless the rains down in   Africa
Gbm           D              A        Dbm E Gbm  A Dbm
Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

great tab... only correction is to play a B barre after A barre and then the Dbm.

No, I think that you're wrong, ottowall. I think that it is a Abm between A and Dbm
