Intro: Cm | G7 | Bbsus2 | F9
       G# | D# | Fm7 | G7
       Cm | G7 | Bbadd9
       F9 | G# | D# | Fm7 | G7

Cm                        G7
On a dark desert highway,
                      Bbadd9
Cool wind in my hair,
                      F9
Warm smell of colitas
                           G#
Rising up through the air.
                          D#
Up ahead in the distance,
                          Fm7
I saw a shimmering light.
My head grew heavy
                       G7
And my sight grew dim;
I had to stop for the night.

Cm                              G7
There she stood in the doorway;
                          Bbadd9
I heard the mission bell.
                   Bbadd9/F
And I was thinking to myself:
              F9
This could be heaven
                       G#
Or this could be hell.
                          D#
Then she lit up a candle,
                           Fm7
And she showed me the way.
                                     G7
There were voices down the corridor;
I thought I heard them say:

Chorus:
   G#                          D#
     “Welcome to the Hotel California,
            G7
     Such a lovely place
     (Such a lovely place),
            Cm     Bb/D D# Fm7sus2 Fm7sus2/G
     Such a lovely face.
     G#                              D#
     Plenty of room at the Hotel California.
         Fm
     Any time of year
     (Any time of year)
             G7
     You can find it here.”

Cm                           G7
Her mind is Tiffany twisted.
                                  Bbadd9
She got the Mercedes bends. (Uh.)
                                      F9
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys,
                        G#
That she calls friends.
How they dance in the courtyard;
D#                  Fm7
Sweet summer sweat.
                        G7
Some dance to remember;
              G7sus4  G7
Some dance to forget.

Cm                          G7
So I called up the captain:
“Please, bring me my wine.”
        Bbadd9                Bbadd9/F
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here
     F9                     G#
Since nineteen sixty nine”.
And still those voices are calling from
D#        Fm7
Far away;
                                       G7
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say, hey:

Chorus:
   G#                          D#
     “Welcome to the Hotel California,
            G7
     Such a lovely place
     (Such a lovely place),
            Cm     Bb/D D# Fm7sus2
     Such a lovely face.
 Fm7sus2/G   G#
     They’re living it up
                      D#
     At the Hotel California.
            Fm
     What a nice surprise
     (What a nice surprise).
                G7
     Bring your alibis.”

Cm                      G7
Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice,
              Bbadd9
And she said,
                                F9
“We are all just prisoners here
                    G#
Of our own device.”
                              D#
And in the master’s chambers,
                             Fm7
They gathered for the feast.
They stab it with their steely knives,
         G7
But they just can’t kill the beast.

Cm
Last thing I remember
     G7                     Bbadd9
I was running for the door.
                  Bbadd9/F
I had to find the passage back
       F9                  G#
To the place I was before.
“Relax,” said the nightman,
       D#                      Fm7
“We are programmed to receive.
                                    G7
You can check out any time you like
                  G5  F#5 G5
But you can never leave.”
