F | Am | - x4 -

G                   Bm     Em
I hear the drums echoin tonight
G               F             Am         Em   F  Am
She has only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion
G                Bm           Em          G
She's coming in twelve thirthy flight   the moolight winds


     F                      Am7              Em   F  Am
     Reflect the stars that guide me toward salva-tion


G              Bm             Em
I stopped an old man along the way
G                   F             Am              Em   F Am
Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melo-dies
G              B7       Em                 F                Am
He turned to me as if to say  hurry boy it's waiting there for you


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


G                 Bm         Em
The wild dogs cry out in the night
G            F                    Am            Em   F  Am
As they grow restless longing for some solitary compa-ny
G          Bm               Em
I know that I must do what's right
G                     F          Am                  Em   F  Am
Sure as kilimangiaro rises like olimpus above the seranget-ti


     G         B7               Em
     I seek to cure what's deep inside


Em                 F               Am
Frightened of this thing that I've become


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


G   Bm   Em   G   F   Am   Em    F  Am


G   B7     Em             F              Am
               hurry boy it's waiting there for you
     Dm         Bb             F       C
     Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
     Dm                   Bb             F             C
     There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
     Dm        Bb             F   C
     I bless the rains down in   Africa -x4-
     Dm           Bb              F        Am C Dm  F Am
     Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

    Ugh nvm that was dumb

  2. Tomas D'Incau

    All I see are the chords.

  3. Tomas D'Incau

    Where are the tabs???

  4. This is an amazing tab! Play it at -4 with a capo on the 4h fret. If you are a beginner, (I sure am), you can leave out all the “B” chords

  5. kellbell218

    -4 is the easiet and if you put a capo on the 4th fret it puts it back in the original key. You’re welcome lol

  6. play Dbm as a barred chord on the fourth fret and then put another finger on the G string on the 6th fret. It sounds more like the song and is ten times easier to play.

  7. Need to throw in one down-strum of Abm just before the Dbm in the main riff.

    A | Abm | Dbm

  8. use this Dbm fingering instead its much easier

    A|–4——-|
    E|———-|
    C|–1——-|
    G|–1——-|

  9. I did what you told me

    Am I the only one that just wanted to learn the chorus…?

  10. maddyjojo

    Any strumming pattern suggestions?

  11. woops to hard cant play oh well wish I could

  12. Great, really accurate, I found going 2 half steps down makes it easier :)
