INTRO:
Am Am E7 E7 G G D D

F F C C Dm Dm E E


VERSE:
Am Am E7 E7
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
G G D D
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
F F C C
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Dm Dm
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
E E
I had to stop for the night


Am Am E7 E7
There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell
G G
And I was thinking to myself
D D
This could be heaven or this could be hell
F F C C
Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way
Dm Dm
There were voices down the corridor,
E E
I thought I heard them say...


CHORUS:

F F C C
Welcome to the Hotel California.
E7 E7 Am Am
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
F F C C
There's Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Dm Dm E E
Anytime of year,(anytime of year) You can find us here...

VERSE:
Am Am E7 E7
Her mind is Tiffany twisted, She got a mercedes benz
G G D D
She got alot of pretty pretty boys that she calls friends
F F C C
How they danced in the court yard sweet summer sweat
Dm Dm E E
Some dance to remember some dance to forget

Am Am E7 E7
So I called up the captain; Please bring me my wine (he said)
G G D D
We haven't had that spirit here since 1969
F F C C
and still those voice are calling from far away
Dm Dm
Wake you up in the middle of the night
E E
Just to hear them say


CHORUS:

F F C C
Welcome to the Hotel California.
E7 E7 Am Am
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
F F C C
There's Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Dm Dm E E
Anytime of year,(anytime of year) You can find us here...


VERSE:

Am Am E7 E7
Mirrors on the ceiling; the pink champagne on ice (an she said)
G G D D
We are all just prisoners here , of our own device
F F C C
and in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast
Dm Dm
They stab it with their steely knives but they
E E
just can't kill the beast

Am Am E7 E7
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
G G D D
I had find the passage back to the place I was before
F F C C
"Relax" said the night man; we are programmed to receive
Dm Dm
You can check out anytime you like
E E
But you can never leave...


CHORUS 2:

F F C C
Welcome to the Hotel California.
E7 E7 Am Am
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
F F C C
There's Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Dm Dm E E
What a nice surprise; bring your alibis

Chorus 2 comes before the last verse and is:
F C
Welcome to the Hotel California.
E7 Am
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
F C
Livin it up at the Hotel California
DmE
What a nice surprise... what a nice surprise... bring your alibis

Then, after the last verse, the song finishes with a long instrumental.
