Hotel California

Capo 7  

Intro: Em   B7/D#   Dsus2   A9/C#   C   G   Am7   B7/D (2X)   
Em                        B7/D#   
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair,   
Dsus2                      A9/C#   
Warm smell of 'colitas' rising up through the air,   
C                         G   
Up ahead in the distance I saw a shimmering light.   
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,   
I had to stop for the night.   
Em                               B7/D#   
There she stood in the doorway.  I heard the mission bell,   
Dsus2                                          A9/C#   
And I was thinking to myself "This could be heaven or this could be hell."   
C                        G   
Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way.   
Am7                                   B7   
There were voices down the corridor; I thought I heard them say:   

C                          G   
"Welcome to the Hotel California   
         B7                            Em        
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face.   
C                                  G   
Plenty of room at the Hotel California.   
    Am                    B7                         
Any time of year you can find it here."   

Em                           B7/D#   
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the 'Mercedes bends'. uh!   
Dsus2                                      A9/C#   
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls 'friends'.   
C                                G   
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat!   
Am7                      B7   
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.   
Em                          B7/D#   
So I called up the captain, "Please bring me my wine." He said   
Dsus2                                      A9/C#   
"We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine,"   
C                                       G   
And still those voices are calling from far away,   
Am7                                      B7   
Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say:   

C                           D   
"Welcome to the Hotel California,   
       B7                       Em       
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face.   
C                               G   
Livin' it up at the Hotel California.   
       Am                  B7                                   
What a nice surprise! Bring your alibis.   

Em                      B7/D#   
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, and she said,   
Dsus2                                A9/C#   
"We are all just prisoners here, of our own device."   
C                             G   
And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast.   
Am7                                              B7   
They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast.   

Em                     B7/D#   
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door.   
Dsus2                                     A9/C#   
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before.   
C                                  G   
"Relax," said the night man, "We are programmed to receive.   
Am7                                   B7   
You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave."
