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! ".

Notes.
1. This version was TAB'ed to match the key of the ensemble performance and to allow the chords to be played as open as possible, in the 1st position on a 12-string guitar.
