African Nights - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest


Lyrics
(
Les Holroyd)driving down the roadunder the southern lightlooking back to seewhere we've come fromas we watched the sun go downrain it fell like diamondsfrom kimberely mineson the road to jo-burgwith the dying lightfarewell durbancity of natalstopped awhile to stretch my thoughtsas we crossed the borderlineand into transvaali saw the sun go downunder the southern skiesover and overi'll always rememberthose beautiful african nightsin the old v.w.we'd count the mileswe travelled with a friendwhose name was farrthe stories that he told ustalked of facestimes and placessang and played his guitardriving down the roadwe hear the morning riseleaving all the pastso far behindthe sound-man played the "the eagles"as we listen"take it easy"echoes on through our livesi saw the sun go downunder the southern skiesover and overi'll always rememberi still hear them callno matter how farthose beautiful african nights
