The lyrics on the Abe Lincoln part are wrong. It's 'Emanci-mother****in'-proclamation', as in Emancipation Proclamation, not 'and made some...'

i'm pretty sure the last Am you're not sure about should be E.

i think it sounds about right, except the Dm, which i believe should be Dsus4, which looks like this: x-x-0-2-3-3
