Bm
On a dark desert highway,
F#7
Cool wind in my hair,
A
The warm smell of colitas
E
Rising up through the air
G
Up ahead in the distance
D
I saw a shimmering light
Em
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#7
I had to stop for the night.

Bm
There she stood in the doorway
F#7
I heard the mission bell
A
And I was thinkin’ to myself:
E
“This could be heaven or this could be hell”
G
Then she lit up a candle
D
And she showed me the way,
Em
There were voices down the corridor
F#7
I thought I heard them say:

G D
“Welcome to the Hotel California”
F#7
Such a lovely place,
Bm
Such a lovely face,
G D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em
Any time of year
F#7
You can find it here.

Bm
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted,
F#7
She got the Mercedes Benz
A
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys,
E
That she calls friends,
G
How they dance in the courtyard,
D
Sweet summer sweat
Em
Some dance to remember,
F#7
Some dance to forget.

Bm
So I called up the Captain,
F#7
“Please bring me my wine”,
A
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here
E
since 1969”,
G
And still those voices are calling from
D
far away,
Em
Wake you up in the middle of the night
F#7
Just to hear them say

G D
“Welcome to the Hotel California”
F#7
Such a lovely place,
Bm
Such a lovely face,
G D
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
Em
What a nice surprise
F#7
Bring your alibis.

Bm
Mirrors on the ceiling,
F#7
The pink champagne on ice,
A
And she said, “We are all just prisoners here
E
of our own device”,
G
And in the master’s chambers,
D
They gathered for the feast,
Em
They stab it with their steely knives,
F#7
But they just can’t kill the beast.

Bm
Last thing I remember
F#7
I was running for the door
A
I had to find the passage back
E
To the place I was before
G
“Relax”, said the night man
D
“We are programmed to receive
Em
You can check out any time you like
F#7
But you can never leave”
