Intro : [Am Am][E E][G G][D D][F F][C C][Dm Dm][E E] x2

1st Verse :
Am Am                        E E
 On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
G G                      D D
 Warm smell of colitas, rising through the air
F F                                  C C
 Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimering light
Dm Dm                                       E E
 My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, I had to stop for the night

2nd Verse :
Am Am                              E E
 There she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission bell
G G                                             D D
 And I was thinking to myself : this could be heaven or this could be hell 
F F                                C C
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
Dm Dm                                    E E
 There were voices down the corridor ; I thought I heard them say :

Chorus :
F F                        C C
Welcome to the Hotel California
       E E                                          Am Am
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a lovely face
F F                               C C
Plenty of room at the Hotel California,
    Dm Dm                                       E E
Any time of year (any time of year), you can find it here"

3rd Verse :
Am Am                            E E
 Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
G G                                           D D
 She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
F F                                 C C
 How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat,
Dm Dm                      E E
 Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

4th Verse :
Am Am                            E E
 So I called up the captain, "Please bring me my wine", He said
G G                                      d
"We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine"
F F                                        C C
 And still those voices are calling from far away
Dm Dm                                      E E
 Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say :

Chorus :
F F                        C C
Welcome to the Hotel California
       E E                                          Am Am
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a lovely face
     F F                             C C
They living it up at the Hotel California
       Dm Dm                                               E E>let ring
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), bring your alibis"

5th Verse :
Am Am>let ring             E E>let ring
 Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said
G G>let ring                                D D>let ring
"We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
F F>let ring                    C C>let ring
 And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast
Dm Dm>let ring                                    E E>let ring
 They stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast

6th verse :
Am Am                            E E
 Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
G G                                      D D
 I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
F F                                    C C
"Relax," said the night man, "We are programmed to receive
Dm Dm                                       E E
 You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave"

Ending (solo) :[Am Am][E E][G G][D D][F F][C C][Dm Dm][E E]>let ring
