Am                                     E
On a dark desert highway Cool wind in my hair
G                                 D7
Warm smell of colitas Rising up through the air
F                                                   C
Up ahead in the distance I saw a shimmering light
Dm                            E7
My head grew heavy, and my sight grew dim

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

Welcome to the Hotel California

Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year

Any time of year (background)
You can find it here

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

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

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

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

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
