Intro: x4

  A             G#m C#m7     

B                D#m7      G#m  
I hear the drums echoing tonight
   G#m/F#           A/E    
But she hears only whispers
         F#4 
Of some quiet
     G#m7 A    G#m C#m7  B
Conversation              
B            D#m7       G#m  
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
    G#m/F#          A/E  
The moonlit wings reflect
                F#4    
The stars that guide me
         G#m7 A   G#m C#m7  B
Towards salvation            
B            D#m7              G#m
I stopped an old man along the way
G#m/F#              A/E          
Hoping to find some old forgotten
F#4              G#m7 A   G#m C#m7
Words or ancient melodies         
B            D#m7        G#m
He turned to me as if to say
 G#m             A      
"Hurry boy, it's waiting
              G#m C#m7   F#m
There for you"              

F#m               Dadd9 
It's gonna take a lot to
         A          E    F#m
Drag me away   from you     
F#m                    Dadd9  
There's nothing that a hundred
       A               E   F#m
Men or more could ever do     
F#m         Dadd9        
I bless the rains down in
A   E  F#m
Africa    
F#m             Dadd9     
Gonna take some time to do
    A              C#m7 E F#m
The things we never haaaad   
G#m A   
Ooh ooh)‎

Bridge: x2

  A             G#m C#m7     

B             D#m7           G#m  
The wild dogs cry out in the night
  G#m/F#             
As they grow restless
A/E             
Longing for some
F#4      G#m7 A  G#m C#m7
Solitary company         
B           D#m7              G#m 
I know that I must do what's right
           G#m/F#      A/E  
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises
      F#4         
Like Olympus above
     G#m   A  G#m C#m7  B
The Serengeti            
B         D#m7             G#m   
I seek to cure what's deep inside
G#m                A    
Frightened of this thing
                 G#m C#m7
That I've become         

F#m        Dadd9        
It's gonna take a lot to
         A        E    F#m
Drag me away from you     
F#m                    Dadd9  
There's nothing that a hundred
       A               E   F#m
Men or more could ever do     
F#m         Dadd9        
I bless the rains down in
A   E   F#m
Africa     
F#m             Dadd9     
Gonna take some time to do
    A               C#m7 E F#m
The things we never haaaaaaad 
G#m A  
Ooh ooh
