Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
From: andrew0627@aol.com email me if you find something wrong.

This is a cross between Toto and Howie Day. Great song on acoustic with finger picking
and strumming. The verses are Toto and the chorus is Howie Day, I think it just sounds
amazing.

Toto - Africa


[Intro]

A Dbm (x4)


[Verse 1]

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


[Hook]

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

[Verse 2]

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


[Hook]

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

B   Em   Am   B   A   Dbm   
Abm    A / Dbm
B   Em     Am                   A              Dbm
               hurry boy it's waiting there for you

just try singing the song along with the chords you gave... it sounds horrible. plus, the chord names and the fingerings you gave at the end don't correspond, for instance B is x24442 and not 332x33 (which is a kind of Cadd9/G). Besides, i also tried playing using the fingerings instead of the chords according to their name but that doesn't work either. if you want, email me when your tab is corrected and i will change my rating.

This is the most absolutely worst version I've ever played.
