Hotel California

(Eagles, Gypsy Kings)

 

 

(starts on F#)

 

Bm                         F#

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair

A                       E

Warm smell of colitas, rising through the air

G                          D

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimering light

Em                                          F#

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, 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

F#                                                  Bm

Such a lovely place (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, 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:

 

G                            D

Welcome to the Hotel California

F#                                                  Bm

Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a lovely face

G                                 D

They livin' it up at the Hotel California

Em                                                 F#

What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), bring your alibis
