Wasted Time

Year: 1976 - Album: Hotel California

(Frey / Henley)

C                    Fm6   
Well baby, there you stand   
C/G                                 F/G   
With your little head, down in your hand   
F               C/E                Dm        C/E   
Oh, my God, you can't believe it's happening again   
F                            C/E           
Your baby's gone, and you're all alone   
       Dm             G7   
And it looks like the end.   
C                          Fm6   
And you're back out on the street,   
C/E                  F/G    G7   
And you're tryin' to remenber.   
F                     C/E   
How will you start it over?   
   Dm                 C/E   
You don't know if you can   
    F                      C/E   
You don't care much for a strange's touch,   
        Dm              G7   
But you can't hold your man.   
Am                      E7/G#   
You never thought you'd be alone   
G                 D7/F#   
This far down the line   
F                              Em   
And I know what's been on your mind   
       Dm                   G7     C   
You're afraid it's all been wasted time.   
Bm7        E                   Am   
The autumn leaves have got you thinking   
Bm7       E                   Am   
About the first time that you feel   
Bm7         E           Am       C/G   
You didn't love the boy too much, no, no   
         F     Em         Dm    G7   
You just loved the boy to well, Farewell.   
C                       Fm6   
So you live from day to day,   
C/G                   F/G      G7   
And you dream about tomorrow, oh,   
        F                C/E   
And the hours go by like minutes   
        Dm              C/E   
And the shadows come to stay   
       F                 C/E   
So you take a little something to   
Dm            G7   
make them go away.   
Am                       E7/G#   
And I could have done so many things, baby   
G                    D7/F#   
If I could only stop my mind   
F                           Em   
From wondrin' what I left behind   
         Dm                   G7     C   
And from worrying 'bout this wasted time.   
Ab                             C   
Ooh, another love has come and gone   
Ab                              C    C  Dm  C/E   
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on   
    F               C/E   
I remember what you told    
     Dm                        C/E   
me before you went out on your own:   
              F            C/E   
"Sometimes to keep it together,   
          Dm        G7   
We got to leave it alone."   
   Am                       E7/G#   
So you can get on with your search, baby,   
    G                 D7/F#   
And I can get on with mine   
    F                     Em   
And maybe someday we will find, that it   
Dm             G7    C   
Wasn't really wasted time.   
Ab     Bb  C   
Oh ooooh,   
Ab     Bb  C   
Oh ooooh,   
Ab     Bb  C   
Oh ooooh.
