VERSE 1: Am E7 On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair, Gsus2 D9 Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air. F C Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light. Dm7 My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, E I had to stop for the night.
VERSE 2: Am E7 There she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission bell. G Gsus2 G13sus4/E D9 And I was thinking to myself,"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell?" F C Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way. Dm7 There were voices down the corridor, E I thought I heard them say:
CHORUS 1: F C "Welcome to the Hotel California, E7 Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place), Am7 G/D Such a lovely face, F C Plenty of room at the Hotel California, Dm Any time of year (Any time of year), E You can find it here.
VERSE 3: Am E7 Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends. Gsus2 D9 She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends, F C How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. Dm7 E Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.
VERSE 4: Am E7 So I called up the Captain,"Please bring me my wine". Gsus2 D9 He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine". F C An' still those voices are calling from far away, Dm Wake you up in the middle of the night, E Just to hear them say:
CHORUS 2: F C "Welcome to the Hotel California, E7 Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place), Am7 G/D Such a lovely face. F C They're livin' it up at the Hotel California, Dm What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), E Bring your alibis.
VERSE 5: Am E7 Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice. Gsus2 D9 "Ah" she said, "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device". F C And in the master's chambers,they gathered for the feast. Dm7 They stab it with their steely knives, E7 But they just can't kill the beast.
VERSE 6: Am E7 Last thing I remember, I was running for the door. Gsus2 D9 I had to find the passage back, to the place I was before. F C "Relax", said the night man, "We are programmed to receive. Dm You can check-out any time you like, E But you can never leave! ".
