EbmEbm chord                        Bb7Bb7 chord
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair  
DbDb chord                     Ab7Ab7 chord
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
BB chord                         GbGb chord
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light 
AbmAbm chord                                        Bb7Bb7 chord
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night 

EbmEbm chord                              Bb7Bb7 chord
There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell 
DbDb chord                                            Ab7Ab7 chord
And I was thinking to myself, "This could be Heaven or this could be Hell" 
BB chord                        GbGb chord
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way 
AbmAbm chord                                  Bb7Bb7 chord
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California

Such a lovely place - Such a lovely place - Such a lovely face 
BB chord                               GbGb chord
Plenty of room at the Hotel California  
    AbmAbm chord                                     Bb7Bb7 chord
Any time of year - Any time of year - You can find it here


Verse:
EbmEbm chord                           Bb7Bb7 chord
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
DbDb chord                                     Ab7Ab7 chord
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends 
BB chord                                GbGb chord
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. 
AbmAbm chord                      Bb7Bb7 chord
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

EbmEbm chord                           Bb7Bb7 chord
So I called up the Captain, "Please bring me my wine" 
          DbDb chord                                     Ab7Ab7 chord
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine" 
BB chord                                       GbGb chord
And still those voices are calling from far away, 
AbmAbm chord                                     Bb7Bb7 chord
Wake you up in the middle of the night Just to hear them say...

              DbDb chord                               Ab7Ab7 chord
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"

And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast
