Tom Waits "Alice" guitar chords & lyrics

This is another song which somehow 'slipped thru the cracks'. I discovered my transposition of 'Alice' while migrating my site to a new host recently. Another one I had worked out and forgotten to post to the site. Ah well, better late than never, I s'pose...

In fairness, Tom did release 'Alice' and 'Woyczec' - two albums with totally contrasting material, on the same date in 2002 - as a huge Tom Waits fan, I probably spent that whole month just listening to the great new songs.

But I have now posted the chords for "Alice to my Tom Waits songs page at the link below:

Guitar chords and Lyrics for Tom Waits songs - "Alice"

You should try playing along with the video (above), or on Alice on Youtube

The original is in the key of F#m, which throws out somee tricky enough chords, so I've transposed it down to Em ( Check out my guide to chord transposition, to see how this is done. ). Anywaze, this leads to a more manageable set of chords - Am7, B7, Em, and E7. It's one of Tom's softer songs ( "Bawlers..." ), so you don't have to drink a quart of bourbon and smoke 60 Lucky Strikes before attempting it...!

You can check out Tom's official website at : http://www.tomwaits.com/

Enjoy your music!
