Alice's Restauraunt
words & music by Arlo Guthrie

Sheet Music:
This Is The Arlo Guthrie Book - PDF
Acoustic Guitar Magazine (September 1998) - PDF

Code:
From: mzraly@cs.umb.edu (Michael S. Zraly)

transcribed by Russ Shipton w/alterations by Mike Zraly

This originally appeared in Shipton's book "Blues & Ragtime Guitar" --
sorry, I don't know the publisher's name; I sold the book a few years ago.

This progression gets repeated throughout the song/monologue;
the only exception is the "impending doom" sound effect (I for-
get where in the song this occurs) produced by strumming the
following chords in sequence:

        Ebo7       F#o7       Ao7       Co7

    E |---2----------5---------8--------11--|
    B |---1----------4---------7--------10--|
    G |---2----------5---------8--------11--|
    D |---1----------4---------7--------10--|
    A |-------------------------------------|
    E |-------------------------------------|

and the ending strums, which are C C F F C G C chords in usual
positions.


Here is the main vamp, with lyrics shown as they are sung in the
chorus.  The rest of the lyrics follow the tablature.
