INTRO:

Am Am E7 E7 G G D D

F F C C Dm Dm E7 E7


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
E7 E7
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
E7 E7
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
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Dm Dm
Anytime of year
E7 E7
You can find it here

VERSE:

Am Am E7 E7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
G G D D
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends
F F C C
How they dance in the court yard sweet summer sweat
Dm Dm E7 E7
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
E7 E7
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
They living' it up at the Hotel California
Dm Dm
What a nice surprise
E7 E7
Bring you alibis


VERSE:

Am Am E7 E7
Mirrors on the ceiling the pink champagne on ice, and 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
E7 E7
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
E7 E7
But you can never leave"
