[Verse 1]
Am                        E7
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair,
Gsus2                  D9
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air.
F                         C
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.

[Verse 2]
Am                              E7
There she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission bell.
G                  Gsus2       G13sus4/E              D9
And I was thinking to myself,"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell?"
F                        C
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]
F                           C
"Welcome to the Hotel California,
Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place),
Such a lovely face,
F                                  C
Plenty of room at the Hotel California,
Any time of year (Any time of year),
You can find it here.

[Verse 3]
Am                           E7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends.
Gsus2                                D9
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends,
F                                C
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Dm7                          E7
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.

[Verse 4]
Am                         E7
So I called up the Captain,"Please bring me my wine".
               Gsus2                                  D9
He said that , "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine".
F                                       C
An' still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night, 
Just to hear them say:

[Chorus 2]
F                            C
"Welcome to the Hotel California,
Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place),
Am            G/B   Am   G/D
Such a lovely face.
        F                               C
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California,
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise),
Bring your alibis.

[Verse 5]
Am                      E7
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice.
               Gsus2                            D9
"Ah" she said, "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device".
F                                 C
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]
Am                           E7
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door.
Gadd9                                  D9
I had to find the passage back, to the place I was before.
F                                    C
"Relax", said the night man, "We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!"
