Song Author Glenn Frey , Don Felder og Don Henley Lyrics by: Glenn Frey , Don Felder og Don Henley Performer: The Eagles Submitted by: tumi
[Bm]    [F#]    [A]    [E]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    [F#]    
[Bm]    [F#]    [A]    [E]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    [F#]    
[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

[Bm]There she stood in the doorway;
[F#]I heard the mission bell
[A]And I was thinking to myself
this could be [E]heaven or this could be hell
[G]Then she lit up a candle,
[D]and she showed me the way
[Em]There were voices down the corridor,
[F#]I thought I heard them say

[G]Welcome to the Hotel Cali[D]fornia.
Such a [F#7]lovely place, such a [Bm7]lovely face
[G]Plenty of room at the Hotel Cali[D]fornia
Any [Em]time of year you can [F#]find it here

[Bm]Her mind is Tiffany twisted,
she [F#]got the Mercedes bends
[A]She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
that [E]she calls friends
[G]How they dance in the [D]courtyard, sweet summer sweat
[Em]Some dance to remember,
[F#]some dance to forget

[Bm]So I called up the captain;
"[F#]Please bring me my wine."
"[A]We haven't had that spirit here
since [E]nineteen sixty-nine"
[G]And still those voices are calling from [D]far away
[Em]Wake you up in the middle of the night,
[F#]just to hear them say

[G]Welcome to the Hotel Cali[D]fornia.
Such a [F#7]lovely place, such a [Bm7]lovely face
They [G]livin' it up at the Hotel Cali[D]fornia
What a [Em]nice surprise bring your [F#]alibis

[Bm]Mirrors on the ceiling,
the pink [F#]champagne on ice
[A]And she said "We are all just prisoners here,
of [E]our own device"
[G]And in the master's chambers,
they [D]gathered for the feast
[Em]They stab it with their steely knives,
but they [F#]just can't kill the beast

[Bm]Last thing I remember,
I was [F#]running for the door
I [A]had to find the passage back
to the place I was be[E]fore
"[G]Relax" said the nightman,
"We are [D]programmed to receive"
"[Em]You can check out anytime you like,
[F#]but you can never leave"

             

On a dark desert highway,
cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
rising up through the air
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

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

Welcome to the Hotel California.
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year you can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany twisted,
she got the Mercedes bends
She 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."
"We haven't had that spirit here
since nineteen sixty-nine"
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 face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
the 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 programmed to receive"
"You can check out anytime you like,
but you can never leave"
