African Nights (Harvest Barclay James)

Driving down the road Under the southern light Looking back to see Where we've come from As we watched the sun go down Rain it fell like diamonds From Kimberley mines On the road to Jo'burg With the dying light Farewal Durban City of Natal Stopped a while to stretch my thoughts As we crossed the borderline And into Transvaal I saw the sun go down Under the southern skies Over and over I'll always remember Those beautiful African nights In the old VW We'd count the miles We travelled with a friend Whose name was Farr The stories that he told us Talked of faces Times and places Sang and played his guitar Driving down the road We hear the morning rise Leaving all the past So far behind The sound man played the Eagles As we listen "Take It Easy" Echoes on through our lives I saw the sun go down Under the southern skies Over and over I'll always remember I still hear them call No matter how far Those beautiful African nights
