Africa Chords

I just saw a tab for this song out there. But since it was missing quite a few
chords i decided to post my version. This is just like TOTO'S version.The only
difference is Howie's version is in a different key and acoustic. Any questions
or concerns:  

A                C#m      F#m
I hear the drums echoing tonight
A              G                Bm         F#m      G  Bm
She hears only whispers of some quiet conversations
A               C#m           F#m          
She's coming in twelve- thirty flight
 A                G                      Bm               F#m       G Bm
The moonlit winds reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation
A            C#m               F#m
I stopped an old man along the way
A                    G            Bm               F#m      G Bm
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
A              C#m       F#m                G                  Bm
He turned to me as if to say Hurry boy it's waiting there for you

[ Tab from: ]
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 Africa
Em              C              G                 Bm D Em  G Bm
Gonna take some time to do the things we never  had

A             C#m           F#m
The wild dogs cry out in the night
A                     G                Bm        F#m     G Bm
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
A            C#m             F#m
I know that I must do what's right
A                     G          Bm                 F#m     G Bm
Sure as Kilimangiaro rises like Olympus above the Serangetti
A            C#m             F#m
I seek to cure what's deep inside
                   G                     Bm
Frightened of this thing that I've become

          G       Bm        A      C#m       F#m
