Hotel California  Eagles

O[Bm]n a dark desert highway, c[F#7]ool wind in my hair
W[A]arm smell of colitas r[E]ising up through the air
U[G]p ahead in the distance, I[D] saw a shimmering light
M[Em]y head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I[F#7] had to stop for the night

-------------------------------

T[Bm]here she stood in the doorway;  I[F#7] heard the mission bell
A[A]nd I was thinking to myself this could be h[E]eaven or this could be hell
T[G]hen she lit up a candle, [D]and she showed me the way
T[Em]here were voices down the corridor, I[F#7] thought I heard them say

CHORUS
------

W[G]elcome to the Hotel Calif[D]ornia.
Such a l[Em]ovely place, such a l[Bm7]ovely face
(1)P[G]lenty of room at the Hotel Calif[D]ornia
(2)They livin' it up at the Hotel California
(1)Any t[Em]ime of year (any time of year) you can f[F#]ind it here
(2)What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise) bring your alibis


Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the captain; "Please bring me my wine."
"We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine"
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

CHORUS (with ending 2)

Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
"Relax" said the nightman, "We are programmed to receive"
"You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave"

(Instrumental and fade)
