Chords & Lyrics (1st guitar - Capo 7th Fret):
--------------------------------------------

Em                        B7
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
D2                     C#m,5-
Warm smell of colitas, rising through the air
C                         G
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Am7
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, 
        B7
I had to stop for the night


There she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission 
bell
And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven
or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor; I thought I 
heard them say


Chorus:
------

C                    G
Welcome to the Hotel California
B7
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a
Em
lovely face
C                              G
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
  Am7
Any time of year (any time of year), you can
B7
find it here

Chords & Lyrics (2nd Guitar - No Capo):
--------------------------------------

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


There she stood in the doorway, I heard the
mission bell
And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven
or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor; I thought
I heard them say


Chorus 1:
--------

C                    G
Welcome to the Hotel California
B7
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a
Em
lovely face
C                              G
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
  Am7
Any time of year (any time of year), you can
B7
find it here


Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the
Mercedes Benz
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, He said
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 2:
--------

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place),
such a lovely face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise),
bring your alibis

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 night man, We are programmed
to receive
You can check out any time you like, but you
can never leave

Outro: 5 verses...fade out
