VERSE 1
********
F
Driving down the road under the southern light

Looking back to see where we've come from
Bb
As we watched the sun go down rain it fell like diamonds
     F
From Kimberley mines


-----------------------------
VERSE 2
*********
F
On the road to Jo'burg with the dying light

Farewell Durban city of Natal
Bb
Stopped a while to stretch my thoughts as we crossed the borderline
    F
And into Transvaal


-----------------------------
CHORUS
*******
C            Dm     Bb
   I saw the sun go down
C         Bb       F     Bb
Under the southern skies
C           Dm
   Over and over
Bb
   I'll always remember
                        F
Those beautiful African nights


-----------------------------
VERSE 3
********
F
In the old VW we'd count the miles

We traveled with a friend whose name was Farr
Bb
The stories that he told us talked of places
                         F
Times and faces sang and played his guitar


-----------------------------
VERSE 4
********
F
Driving down the road we hear the morning rise

Leaving all the past so far behind
Bb
The sound man played the Eagles as we listen
                    F
Take It Easy echoes on through our lives


-----------------------------
CHORUS
*******
C            Dm     Bb
   I saw the sun go down
C         Bb       F     Bb
Under the southern skies
C           Dm
   Over and over
Bb
   I'll always remember
                        
I still hear them call

No matter how far
                        Dm
Those beautiful African nights

Under the southern skies

   I'll always remember
                        
I still hear them call

No matter how far
                        F
Those beautiful African nights
        F
African nights
