EAGLES - HOTEL CALIFORNIA

Hotel California


Intro: Bm F# A E G D Em F#

Verse 1:
Bm
On a dark desert highway
F#
Cool wind in my hair
A
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#
I had to stop for the night

Verse 2: Play the same chords as verse 1:

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be Heaven or this could be Hell
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Chorus 1:
G D
Welcome to the Hotel California
Em
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely place (background)
F#
Such a lovely face
G D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em
Any time of year
Any time of year (background)
F#
You can find it here
You can find it here

Verse 3: Same chords as Verse 1 and 2:

Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She's got the Mercedes bends
She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget

Verse 4:

So I called up the Captain
Please bring me my wine, He said
We haven't had that spirit here since 1969
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

Chorus 2: Play chords as Chorus 1

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely Place
Such a lovely Place (background)
Such a lovely face
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
What a nice surprise (background)
Bring your alibies

Verse 5:

Mirrors on the ceiling
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

Verse 6:

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 programed to recieve
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave
