Verse:
FmFm chord                        C7C7 chord
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair  
EbEb chord                     Bb7Bb7 chord
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
DbDb chord                         AbAb chord
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light 
BbmBbm chord                                        C7C7 chord
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night 

FmFm chord                              C7C7 chord
There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell 
EbEb chord                                            Bb7Bb7 chord
And I was thinking to myself, "This could be Heaven or this could be Hell" 
DbDb chord                        AbAb chord
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way 
BbmBbm chord                                  C7C7 chord
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say...


Chorus:
DbDb chord                        AbAb chord 
Welcome to the Hotel California 
       C7C7 chord                                FmFm chord        C7C7 chord  FmFm chord
Such a lovely place - Such a lovely place - Such a lovely face 
DbDb chord                               AbAb chord
Plenty of room at the Hotel California  
    BbmBbm chord                                     C7C7 chord
Any time of year - Any time of year - You can find it here


Verse:
FmFm chord                           C7C7 chord
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
EbEb chord                                     Bb7Bb7 chord
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends 
DbDb chord                                AbAb chord
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. 
BbmBbm chord                      C7C7 chord
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

FmFm chord                           C7C7 chord
So I called up the Captain, "Please bring me my wine" 
          EbEb chord                                     Bb7Bb7 chord
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine" 
DbDb chord                                       AbAb chord
And still those voices are calling from far away, 
BbmBbm chord                                     C7C7 chord
Wake you up in the middle of the night Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the Hotel California 
       C7C7 chord                                      FmFm chord        C7C7 chord FmFm chord
Such a lovely place - Such a lovely place - Such a lovely face 
DbDb chord                                  AbAb chord
They livin' it up at the Hotel California 
       BbmBbm chord                                             C7C7 chord
What a nice surprise - what a nice surprise - Bring your alibis 


Verse:
FmFm chord                      C7C7 chord
Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice 
              EbEb chord                               Bb7Bb7 chord
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" 
DbDb chord
And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast 
BbmBbm chord
They stab it with their steely knives, But they just can't kill the beast

FmFm chord                           C7C7 chord
Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door 
EbEb chord                                 Bb7Bb7 chord
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before 
DbDb chord                                   AbAb chord
"Relax, " said the night man, "We are programmed to receive. 
BbmBbm chord                                   C7C7 chord
