{c:Verso 1}
[Dm]On a dark desert highway, [A]cool wind in my hair
[C]Warm smell of colitas, [G]rising through the air
[Bb]Up ahead in the distance, [F]I saw a shimering light
[Gm]My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, [A]I had to stop for the night

{c:Verso 2}
[Dm]There she stood in the doorway, [A]I heard the mission bell
[C]And I was thinking to myself: this could be [G]heaven or this could be hell
[Bb]Then she lit up a candle [F]and she showed me the way
[Gm]There were voices down the corridor; [A]I thought I heard them say:

{soc}
{c:Estribillo}
[Bb]"Welcome to the Hotel Califor[F]nia
[A]Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a [Dm]lovely face
[Bb]Plenty of room at the Hotel Califor[F]nia
Any [Gm]time of year (any time of year), you can [A]find it here"
{eoc}

{c:Verso 3}
[Dm]Her mind is Tiffany twisted, [A]she got the Mercedes Benz
[C]She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, [G]that she calls friends
[Bb]How they dance in the courtyard, [F]sweet summer sweat
[Gm]Some dance to remember, [A]some dance to forget

{c:Verso 4}
[Dm]So I called up the captain, [A]"Please bring me my wine", He said
[C]"We haven't had that spirit here since [G]nineteen sixty-nine"
[Bb]And still those voices are calling from [F]far away
[Gm]Wake you up in the middle of the night, [A]just to hear them say:

{soc}
{c:Estribillo}
[Bb]"Welcome to the Hotel Califor[F]nia
[A]Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a [Dm]lovely face
They [Bb]livin' it up at the Hotel Califor[F]nia
What a [Gm]nice surprise (what a nice surprise), bring your [A]alibis"
{eoc}

{c:Verso 5}
[Dm]Mirrors on the ceiling, [A]the pink champagne on ice, and she said
[C]"We are all just prisoners here, [G]of our own device"
[Bb]And in the master's chambers, [F]they gathered for the feast
[Gm]They stab it with their steely knives but they [A]just can't kill the beast

{c:Verso 6}
[Dm]Last thing I remember, I was [A]running for the door
[C]I had to find the passage back to the [G]place I was before
[Bb]"Relax," said the night man, "We are [F]programmed to receive
[Gm]You can check out any time you like, but [A]you can never leave"

{soc}
{c:Estribillo}
[Bb]"Welcome to the Hotel Califor[F]nia
[A]Such a lovely place (such a lovely place), such a [Dm]lovely face
[Bb]Plenty of room at the Hotel Califor[F]nia, 
Any [Gm]time of year (any time of year),
you can [A]find it here"
