Verse 1
BmOn a dark desert highway, F#7cool wind in my hair
AWarm smell of colitas, E7rising up through the air
GUp ahead in the distance, DI saw a shimmering light
EmMy head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#7I had to stop for the night
BmThere she stood in the doorway; F#7I heard the mission bell
AAnd I was thinking to myself,
E7"This could be heaven or this could be hell"
GThen she lit up a candle aDnd she showed me the way
EmThere were voices down the corridor,
F#7I thought I heard them say
Chorus
GWelcome to the Hotel CaliDfornia
Such aF#7 lovely place (such a lovely place)
SuBmch a lovely face D
GPlenty of room at the Hotel CaliDfornia
SuBmch a lovely face D
Any Emtime of year (any time of year)
You can F#7find it here
Verse 2
BmHer mind is Tiffany-twisted, F#7she got the Mercedes Bends
AShe got a lot of pretty, prE7etty boys she calls friends
DPlenty of room at the Hotel CaliGfornia
GHow they dance in the courtyard, Dsweet summer sweat
EmSome dance to remember, soF#7me dance to forget
BmSo I called up the Captain, "F#7Please bring me my wine"
AHe said, "We haven't had that spirit here since E71969"
GAnd still those voices are calling fDrom far away,
EmWake you up in the middle of the night
BmLast thing I remember,F#7 I was running for the door
F#7Just to hear them say

Verse 3
BmMirrors on the ceiling, tF#7he pink champagne on ice
AShe said, we are all just prisoners here of E7our own device
AHe said, "We haven't had that spirit here since E71969"
GAnd in the master's chambers, DThey gathered for the feast
EmThey stab it with their steely knives,
F#7But they just can't kill the beast
BmLast thing I remember,F#7 I was running for the door
AShe got a lot of pretty, prE7etty boys she calls friends
AI had to find the passage back E7to the place I was before

F#7But you can never leave"
