Lyrics with chords

Intro
|:   Bm   F#    A   E   G    D     Em    F#  :|
Verse 1
Bm
On a dark desert highway,
F#
cool wind in my hair
A
Warm smell of colitas,
E
rising up through the air

G 
Up ahead in the distance,
D
I saw a shimmering light
Em
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#
I had to stop for the night

Bm
There she stood in the doorway
F#
I heard the mission bell
A
And I was thinking to myself
E
This could be Heaven or this could be Hell

G
Then she lit up a candle
D
and she showed me the way
Em
There were voices down the corridor
F#
I thought I heard them say
 
Chorus
G                                                 D
Welcome to the Hotel California
F#
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Bm
Such a lovely face
G D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em
Any time of year (Any time of year )
F#
You can find it here
Verse 2
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're livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
What a nice surprise
Bring your alibis
Verse 3
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 checkout any time you like
But you can never leave

Solo/outro
|:   Bm   F#    A   E   G    D     Em    F#  :|
