Main Riff:
   E                 D    A

Mike's little solo riff:

E                      D              A
Conrad the Caterpillar thought he was really killer,
E                        D        A
Couldn't wait to build a cocoon (original lyrics)
E                               D       A
Couldn't wait to buy blue suede shoes (recent lyrics)
E                         D             A
Spent all his days eatin' leaves in the shade
    E                          D     A
And stayed when the night set, too.
E                      D               A
Conrad the Caterpillar knew life would be a thriller
E                       D     A
Soon as the threads was spun
Wouldn't stop to play in the Caterpillar Games
         D                    A
Till his own webbing game was done.

          E         D      A       E       D  A
He said, "No, no, I got no time to play,
Got a thousand little legs
           D          A        E      D  A
That don't get me too far in a day,
    E        D     A            E        D  A
I'm leaving, looks like I can't stay."

(Main Riff and short Mikey solo)

Verse 2:
That little pillar he found him a willow
Spun in with a craftsmans weave
Wound so tightly to protect him from the light
And all shapes of water that drop from the leaves
Conrad the Caterpillar knew he would be a chiller
And he wound it tighter some more
Wound it so wide and the ends of his legs got sore.

He said, "No, now I can't feel my feet
Just when I thought
It was time to take a stroll on down the street
I'm leaving, looks like I can't leave
What do you know?
What's all this moving around with inside me?

Bridge 1:
   C            D   C


   D     C  G

4th time through, play this instead of the above two staves:


(Repeat Bridge 1)

Bridge 2:


Verse 3:
What kind of 'piller could touch the world of a miller
Chopping trees to build a new store
Nobody sees a lonely bump on the tree
Except a lump who's crying for more
Conrad the Caterpillar knew life would be a chiller
As he wound it tighter some more
Anybody stands in the caterpillar's place
Is moving in a standing run

Bridge 3:
|--4----3----1--|  slide a root position
|--5----4----2--|  E chord down the neck
   G    F#   E

          G                  F#                E
He said, "No brother, I just need some room to fly,
        G             F#                   E
I spent all of my days just trying to keep dry
G                      F#  E
Oh I'd take a waterfall       or a drop from my eye
I can't see nothin' from here anyway,
F#                               E
   I might as well make room and try

Jam on the Bridge 3 groove for about 16 measures.

Step down (not sure of the actual steps) to an E.

(Main Riff and longer Mikey solo with a faster rhythm)

   E                 D      A       E      D  A
Oh no, I just need a little room to play
Got a thousand little wings and I'm gonna
D        A     E     D  A
Use them all today
    E           D          A       E       D  A
I'm leaving, it looks like I gotta stay.
