Up ahead in the distance I saw a shimmering light

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

I had to stop for the night

Verse:
Am chordAm E7 chordE7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted she got the Mercedes Benz

She got a lot of pretty pretty boys she calls friends
F chordF
How they dance in the courtyard

sweet summer sweat

So I called up the Captain

“Please bring me my wine”

He said “We haven’t had that spirit here

Mirrors on the ceiling

The pink champagne on ice
G chordG
And she said “We are all just prisoners
D chordD
here of our own device”
F chordF
And in the master’s chambers
C chordC
They gathered for the feast
Dm chordDm
They stab it with their steely knives
E7 chordE7
But they just can’t kill the beast

Am chordAm
Last thing I remember I was
E7 chordE7
Running for the door

I had to find the passage back

To the place I was before
F chordF
“Relax ” said the night man
C chordC
“We are programmed to receive

You can check-out any time you like
E7 chordE7
But you can never leave ”

Second chorus lyrics are:
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face.
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), bring your alibis

Other than that, the chords are on point other than what ignacimo98 pointed out.
