Bm                        
F#
On a dark desert highway,   
F#                      
A
cool wind in my hair     
A                     
E
Warm smell of colitas  
E                          
G
rising up through the air   
G                         
D
Up ahead in the distance,  
D                          
Em
I saw a shimmering light     
Em                
My head grew heavy
                       
F#
and my sight grew dim    
F#                           
Bm
I had to stop for the night    

Bm                               
F#
There she stood in the doorway     
F#                        
A
I heard the mission bell   
A                           
And I was thinking to myself
              
E     
this could be heaven
                       
G
or this could be hell   
G                         
D
Then she lit up a candle,  
D                          
Em
and she showed me the way    
Em               
There were voices
                   
F#
down the corridor    
F#                           
G
I thought I heard them say

G                        
D      
Welcome to the Hotel California.
       
Em          
Such a lovely place
       
Bm7        
such a lovely face
 
G                   
Plenty of room at the
          
D     
Hotel California
     
Em                            
Any time of year (any time of year)
        
F#          
you can find it here

Bm                           
F#
Her mind is Tiffany twisted,   
    
F#                     
A
she got the Mercedes bends  
A                      
She got a lot of pretty
                 
E                  
G
pretty boys that she calls friends   
G                              
How they dance in the courtyard
 
D                  
Em
sweet summer sweat    
Em                    
Some dance to remember
                 
F# 
some dance to forget

Bm                          
F#
So I called up the captain    
  
F#                         
A
"Please bring me my wine."    
A                                  
E
"We haven't had that spirit here    
E                           
G
since nineteen sixty-nine"   
G                         
And still those voices are
D                      
Em
calling from far away    
Em         
Wake you up
                           
F#
in the middle of the night   
F#                      
G
just to hear them say    

G                        
D      
Welcome to the Hotel California.
       
Em          
Such a lovely place
       
Bm7        
such a lovely face
G                       
They livin' it up at the
          
D     
Hotel California
       
Em           
What a nice surprise
        
Em
(what a nice surprise)
           
F#    
bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
the pink champagne on ice
And she said
"We are all just prisoners here
of our own device"
And in the master's chambers
they gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
but they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage
back to the place I was before
"Relax" said the nightman
"We are programmed to receive"
"You can check out anytime you like
but you can never leave"
