[G5]One pill makes you larger, and [G#5]one pill makes you small
And the [G5]ones that mother gives you, don't do[G#5] anything at all
Go ask [A#5]Alice,[C5] when shes [D#5]ten feet [A#5]tall.[A#5]
[G5]And if you go chasing rabbits, and you [G#5]know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a [G5]hookah-smoking Caterpiller has[G#5] given you the call
Call [A#5]Alice,[C5] when [D#5]she was just [A#5]small.[A#5]
[F5]When men on the chessboard get up and [A#5]tell you where to go,
And you've [F5]just had some kind of mushroom, and your[A#5] mind is moving(?) ???
Go ask [G5]Alice, I think she'll [G5]know.
When [G5]logic and proportion have [G#5]fallen slightly dead,
And the [G5]White Knight is talking backwards, and the [G#5]Red Queens off her head,
Re[A#5]member[C5] what the [D#5]Doormouse [A#5]said - [F5]Keep your [A#5]head, [F5]Keep your [A#5]head[A#5]
* 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 Slides could also be Legatos, but I think only Jefferson knows. ;)
[F#m]One pill makes you larger and [G]one pill makes you small
And the [F#m]ones that mother gives you don't do [G]anything at all
Go ask [A]Alice w[C]hen she's[D] ten [A]feet tall
And if you go chasing rabbits and you know you're gonig to fall.
( ? )
Go ask Alice when she's just small.
When m[E]en on the chessboard get up and [A]tell you where to go..
[E]And you've just have some kind of mushroom and your [A]mind is moving low.
Go ask [F#m]Alice I think she'll know
[F#m]When logic and proportion have [G]fallen ( ?)ly dead.
And the [F#m]white knight is talking backwards and the red [G]queen's off with her head
Re[A]member [C] what the [D]door mouse [A]said
[E]Feed your [A]head
[E]Feed your [A]head
