Johnny Clegg – African Shadow Man lyrics

If you come to my house
I will show you something to see
It's a picture of a man
I used to be
But these days I'm running through the dark
Like a blind man -- what's happened to me?
These days I'm searching for a sign
In the badlands -- oh give it to me

Chorus
African shadow man tell me the future if you can
Tell it to me
There's magic in your hands
Touch my life and set me free
African shadow man

I am a refugee
In a world that once was mine
Hunting my tomorrow
On the edge of time
But these days I'm running through the dark
Like a blind man -- what's happened to me?
There days I'm running from a tribe in the badlands
Oh set me free

Chorus
African shadow man tell me the future if you can
Tell it to me
There's magic in your hands
Oh touch my life and set me free
African shadow man tell me the future if you can
Tell it to me
I don't need a Cadillac
To take me where I have to be

It feels alright, it feels alright to me
It feels alright, it feels alright to be
An African
E-ye hum-o-hum-hum-oh

Chorus
African shadow man show me the future if you can
Tell it to me
There's magic in your hands
Oh touch my life and set me free
African shadow man tell me the future if you can
Tell it to me
I don't need a Cadillac
To take me where I have to be
A shadow man
