Verse

Bm                        F#

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair

A                      E

Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air

G                         D

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light

Em

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

F#

I had to stop for the night

Bm                               F#

There she stood in the doorway,  I heard the mission bell

A                                          E

And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell

G                        D

Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way

Em                                   F#

There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say:

Chorus

G                           D    [Fill 1]  

Welcome to the Hotel California

       F#                                            Bm [Fill 2]

Such a lovely place... such a lovely place... such a lovely face

G                                  D   [Fill 3]

Plenty of room at the Hotel California 

    Em                                          F#

Any time of year... any time of year... you can find it here

Verse

Bm                           F#

Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the Mercedes bends, uh!

A                                    E

She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends

G                                D

How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat

Em                      F#

Some dance to remember, some dance to forget



Bm                          F#

So I called up the captain, "Please bring me my wine," he said

A                                      E

"We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine"

G                                       D

And still those voices are calling from far away

Em                                      F#

Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

Chorus

G                           D    [Fill 4]

Welcome to the Hotel California

       F#                                            Bm [Fill 2]

Such a lovely place... such a lovely place... such a lovely face

G                               D   [Fill 5]

Livin it up at the Hotel California

       Em                                                  F#

What a nice surprise... what a nice surprise... bring your alibis

Verse

Bm                      F#

Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said,

A                                E

"We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"

G                             D

And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast

Em                                              F#

They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast

Bm                     F#

Last thing I remember, I was running for the door

A                                     E

I had to find the passage back to the place I was before

G                                  D

"Relax" said the nightman, "We are programmed to receive"

Em                                   F#

"You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave"
