	  		Intro: Em B7 D A  C G Am  B7 (2X)       
Em                                      B7       
On a dark desert highway,     cool wind in my hair,       
Dsus2                             A9/C#                              (Br to C)   
    Warm smell of 'colitas'         rising up through the air,       
C                                            G       
      Up ahead in the distance    I saw a shimmering light.       
      My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,       
    I had to stop for the night.       
Em                                                  B7       
   There she stood in the doorway.     I heard the mission bell,       
Dsus2                                                                     A9/C#                                 (Br to C)    
    And I was thinking to myself     "This could be heaven or this could be hell."       
C                                         G       
    Then she lit up a candle,    and she showed me the way.       
Am7                                                        B7       
    There were voices down the corridor;     I thought I heard them say:       

C G "Welcome to the Hotel California B7 Em (Br up to C) Such a lovely place, such a lovely face. C G Plenty of room at the Hotel California. Am B7 Any time of year you can find it here."
Em B7 Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the 'Mercedes bends'. uh! Dsus2 A9/C# (Br up to C) She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls 'friends'. C G How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat! Am7 B7 Some dance to remember, some dance to forget. Em B7/D# So I called up the captain, "Please bring me my wine." He said Dsus2 A9/C# "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine," C G And still those voices are calling from far away, Am7 B7 Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say:
C G "Welcome to the Hotel California, B7 Em Such a lovely place, such a lovely face. C G Livin' it up at the Hotel California. Am B7 What a nice surprise! Bring your alibis.
Em B7 Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said, Dsus2 A9/C# (Br up to C) "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device." C G And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast. Am7 B7 They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast. Em B7 Last thing I remember, I was running for the door. Dsus2 A9/C# (Br up to C) I had to find the passage back to the place I was before. C G "Relax," said the night man, "We are programmed to receive. Am7 B7 You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave."
