Africa - Toto (E Flat Tuning)

[Intro]
A#,C,Dm x4 [Play C as A passing chord]

[Verse]
   C                Em7     Am
V1 I hear the drums echoing tonight
       Em7            A#               Dm         C      Intro Chords x1
   But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
   C            Em7              Am
   She's coming in twelve-thirty flight
       Em7              A#                    Dm                 C    Intro Chords x1
   Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
   C                Em7           Am
   I stopped an old man along the way
   Em7                 A#            Dm               C       Intro Chords x1
   Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
   C            Em7         Am     Em7              Intro Chords x1
   He turned to me as if to say: "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

[Chorus]
   Gm                D#              A#       F
Ch It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
   Gm                        D#           A#             F
   There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
   Gm           D#           A#   F
   I bless the rains down in Africa
   Gm              D#             A#          Dm  F  Gm  F, Intro Chords x2
   Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

[Verse]
   C             Em7             Am
V2 The wild dogs cry out in the night
      Em7                        A#          Dm       C   Intro Chords x1
   As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
   C           Em7               Am
   I know that I must do what's right
        Em7            A#           Dm                   C   Intro Chords x1
   Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
   C         Em7              Am      Em7                A#         C        Dm
   I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

Repeat Chorus

Solo Chords- 
C Em7 Am Em7 A# Dm C [Intro Chords x1] C Em7 Am

Em7              A#                C  Dm
Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you
Gm                D#             A#        F
It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Gm                     D#             A#              F
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Gm          D#            A#   F
I bless the rains down in Africa x5
Gm              D#             A#          Dm   F  Gm  F
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
