Eagles - Hotel California
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
G D Welcome to the Hotel California. Em Bm7 Such a lovely place, such a lovely face G D Plenty of room at the Hotel California Em F# Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here
Bm F# Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz A E She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys 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" A E He said, "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...
G D Welcome to the Hotel California Em Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Bm7 Such a lovely face G D They livin' it up at the Hotel California Em What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise) F# Bring your alibis
Bm F# Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice A E And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" G D And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the beast 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 night man, "we are programmed to receive. Em F# "You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!"
