Verse
Bm                          Gb 
  On a dark desert highway  

     GbM7       Gb   A 
Cool wind in my hair  


Warm smell of colitas 

E                         G 
Rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance 

D 
I saw a shimmering light 

E            Em 
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim 

Gb7                         Bm 
I had to stop for the night  


There she stood in the doorway 

  Gb                     A 
I heard the mission bell  


And I was thinking to myself 

              E                            G 
This could be heaven or this could be hell  

                         D 
Then she lit up a candle  

                          Em 
And she showed me the way  


There were voices down the corridor 

Gb                         G 
I thought I heard them say  


Chorus
                                D 
Welcome to the Hotel California  

       Gb 
Such a lovely place 


Such a lovely face 

Bm     D G                                 D 
Plenty   of room at the Hotel California  

    Em 
Any time of year 

        Gb7 
You can find it here 


Verse
Bm 
Her mind is Tiffanytwisted 

Gb7 
She got the Mercedes bends 

A                                   E                   G 
She got a lot of pretty pretty boys  she calls friends How they dance in 


the courtyard 

D 
Sweet summer sweat 

Em                     Gb7 
Some dance to remember  


Some dance to forget 

Bm 
So I called up the Captain 

Gb 
Please bring me my wine 

        A                                     E                  G 
He said we haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixtynine  


Chorus
                                        D        Em 
And still those voices are calling from far away Wake you up in the middle 

             Gb7 
of the night  

        Gb        Gb7 G 
Just to hear them say  

                                D 
Welcome to the Hotel California  

       Gb     Gb7 
Such a lovely place 

                   Bm 
Such a lovely face  


Bridge
        D G                                    D 
They're  living it up at the Hotel California  

       Em 
What a nice surprise 

                  Gb Bm 
Bring your alibis    


Mirrors on the ceiling 

Gb7 
The pink champagne on ice 

             A                                E7 
And she said  we are all just prisoners here   of our own device 


Chorus
G 
And in the master's chambers 

     D 
They gathered for the feast 

     E 
They stab it with their steely knives 

         Gb7 
But they just can't kill the beast 

Bm 
Last thing I remember 

      Gb                   A 
I was running for the door  


I had to find the passage back 

       E                  G 
To the place I was before  


Relax said the night man 

   D                         Em 
We are programmed to receive

Gb 
But you can never leave
