Tie reminders to my fingers

Bringing the power to the people, your reflection of us
F
Some of your people cant hear it, The cries of the earth
C                                 E
Some of your people can't feel it, The way that it hurts

       Am                   
And it hurts great spirit
       Em
And it moves great spirit
               F
Interconnected in the wreckage of a 
                    C        E
Paradigm on its way out, way out...

            Am
Speaking of spiritual lyrical testimony
                    Em
The spirit that did resist, Weaving around false prophecies
                F
Spirit directed and selective, With the message I bring
          C                           E
While the ship slowly sinks, Ive been directed to sing

Am
I'm like a wrecking ball, Breaking down the walls of the past
Em
A minimalist living on bliss,With the last of my cash
                F
You're gonna be justified, With how you treated the land
                C
You're gonna be by my side 
                 E
When I stand and demand

Am
A change
        Em      Am
Tunkashila 4x

Am           Em
Great, great spirit 3x
        Am   Em
Tunkashila
Am           Em
Great, great spirit
        Am    Em
Tunkashila

I'm not a master on guitar, and my musical ear is not something to brag about, but isn't it an E7 that he plays instead of a regular E?
