Hotel California 

Tom: Bm
Intro: Bm - F# - A - E - G - D - Em - F# (2X)
 
Verse
Bm                        F#
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
A                      E
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
G                         D
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Em
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#
I had to stop for the night
 
Bm                               F#
There she stood in the doorway,  I heard the mission bell
A                                          E
And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell
G                        D
Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way
Em                                   F#
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say:
 
Chorus
G                           D    [Fill 1]  
Welcome to the Hotel California
       F#                                            Bm [Fill 2]
Such a lovely place... such a lovely place... such a lovely face
G                                  D   [Fill 3]
Plenty of room at the Hotel California 
    Em                                          F#
Any time of year... any time of year... you can find it here

Verse
Bm                           F#
Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the Mercedes bends, uh!
A                                    E
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends
G                                D
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Em                      F#
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
 
Bm                          F#
So I called up the captain, "Please bring me my wine," he said
A                                      E
"We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine"
G                                       D
And still those voices are calling from far away
Em                                      F#
Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say
 
Chorus
G                           D    [Fill 4]
Welcome to the Hotel California
       F#                                            Bm [Fill 2]
Such a lovely place... such a lovely place... such a lovely face
G                               D   [Fill 5]
Livin it up at the Hotel California
       Em                                                  F#
What a nice surprise... what a nice surprise... bring your alibis

Verse
Bm                      F#
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said,
A                                E
"We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
G                             D
And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast
Em                                              F#
They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast
 
Bm                     F#
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
A                                     E
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
G                                  D
"Relax" said the nightman, "We are programmed to receive"
Em                                   F#
"You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave"
