Chords to Aloha Ke Akua by Nahko Bear (Medicine for the People)
Let me know if there are any mistakes. 
Play it on piano or any instrument of choice. (: 
Intro starts with Dbm

Dbm
Lend your ears, lend your hands,
A
Lend your movement, anything you can.
Dbm
Come to teach, come to be taught.
A
Come in the likeness in the image of God.
                        E
Cause, you can be like that.
                                        Ab
With all that humbleness, and all that respect.

Dbm
All of the power invested in me,
A
be it hard to love my enemies.
                E                               Ab
All of the black bags over the heads of the dead and dying.

Dbm
The more I understand about the human race,
A
the less I comprehend about our purpose and place
                E
and maybe if there was a clearer line 
Ab
the curiosity would satisfy.

Dbm
Time based prophecies that kept me from living,
A
in the moment I am struggling
                                E
to trust the divinity of all the gods
                                Ab
and what the hell they have planned for us.

Dbm
I cry for the creatures who get left behind
A
but everything will change in a blink of an eye
                E
and if you wish to survive,
                        Ab
you will find the guide 


~ Dbm A E Ab ~

        Dbm
I go back and forth every single day,
A
the clarity that comes to me in a choppy way,
E
as the feelings and the places
and the seasons change,
Ab
the galaxies remain.

Dbm
Energy fields cone the body in space.
A
The angels that are coming from a spiritual waste.
E
The hate that gets me distant from my spiritual pace.
Ab                                                      Dbm
Ten fold the manna when the planets are in place, in polar alignment.
A
We're on assignment.
E
Bodies on consignment.
 Ab
Return them to the circus.

Dbm
And what is the purpose?
A                       E
What is the purpose and would you believe it?
Ab
Would you believe it 

        A               B
if you knew what you were for
                E       Ab
and how you became so informed?
           A                    B
Bodies of info performing such miracles.
        E                   Ab
I am a miracle made up of particles
                A
and in this existence,
                B
I'll stay persistent,
                E
and I'll make a difference
                Ab
and I will have lived it.


Dbm     A       E       Ab
Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua,

I will praise, I will praise.

Each day that I wake,
E               Ab
I give thanks, I give thanks.

Dbm             
And the day that I don't wake up
A
and transcend the holy make-up,
E               Ab
I am capable, I am powerful.
Dbm
And the day that I don't wake up
A
and transcend the holy makeup,
E                       Ab
I am on my way to a different place....

        Dbm
I'm not a leader, just a creature,
seeking the features of a teacher.
                A
Whether you follow or whether you lead
                                    E
All mysterious ways of nature and I'm into it.
Ab
Changing management.

                Dbm
And there are various ways to conquer this monotonous metropolis,
A
my stubbornness is bottomless,
my fearlessness is talking shit
E                        Ab
and I'm wide awake and I'm taking names.

Do you speak to me like you speak to God?
A
All of the love and understanding between the father and the son?
Dbm
Do you believe in the perfectness of where you are?
A
These are my people, these are my children,
this is the land that I would fight for.

Dbm
My solidarity is telling me to patiently
A
be moving the musical medicine around the planet in a hurry,
E
Cuz there's no time to waste.
Ab
Got to wake up the people time to stand up and say,
A                   B
