Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'm just finishing what Adam started.  Hopefully I'm not too far off.

Just like in the original by Todo, there is a motif-like 
part which is basically the intro to the song.  Through 
the second line of a verse he goes into it if you listen.
I'll just put this three chord part in parenthesis and then 
it's just a matter of getting the rhythm down.

Chords (in no apparent order whatsoever)

***  the spacing of the chords is a result of my laziness...  
don't rely on it...   ;)

A                Dbm        Gbm
I hear the drums echoing tonight                        
A                  G                 Bm        Gbm   (G Gbm Bm) 
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
A                Dbm        Gbm
She's coming in 12:30 flight
A                  G                 Bm        Gbm   (G Gbm Bm) 
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
A                Dbm        Gbm
I stopped an old man along the way
A                  G                 Bm        Gbm   (G Gbm Bm) 
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
G*                       Bm          G*  Bm
He turned to me as if to say, ''Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you''

(this is me agreeing with adam... kinda)

Em              C                G         D
It's 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 Afr--ica
Em              C       G                Bm  D  Em G Bm   <--kinda tricky
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had           Listen & you'll
                                                             know what I 
G*                           Bm       G*  Bm                 mean
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become


It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Afr--ica

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had


Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you


It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Afr--ica
I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa,
I passed some rains down in Africa

I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
