G5                             G#5
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
        G5                                  G#5
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all
       A#5   C5         D#5      A#5        A#5
Go ask Alice, when shes ten feet tall.


G5                                     G#5
And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
           G5                            G#5
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking Caterpiller has given you the call
     A#5   C5    D#5          A#5        A#5
Call Alice, when she was just small.


F5                                    A#5
When men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go,
           F5                                      A#5
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving(?) ???
       G5                    G5
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know.


     G5                        G#5
When logic and proportion have fallen slightly dead,
        G5                                         G#5
And the White Knight is talking backwards, and the Red Queens off her head,
  A#5   C5        D#5       A#5    F5        A#5   F5        A#5      A#5
Remember what the Doormouse said - Keep your head, Keep your head



* I play all the chords as standard 2 note power chords in the 5th and 6th
  string, except for F5, which I play at the 13 position instead of the 1st.
  Keep the beat military! And if there are any chords other than 5ths in
  here, I can't hear 'em...
  PS.  I think the solo is in G Phyrigian, played on a Strat, neck pickup with
       just a bit of gain.
  PPS. Can anyone tell me what she sings just after the mushrooms? And is she
       really smoking Caterpillers? Why?

The "8" in the first bar should be a "8/9" i think

At times the chords are played a full octave higher
