Hotel California

Em                                 H
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
D                            A
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
C                                  G
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
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

C                                    G
Welcome to the Hotel California
           Am                      Em
Such a lovely place (such a lovely face)
C                                        G
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
       Am                         H
Any time of year, you can 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 court-yard, 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 1969
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place( such a lovely face)
They´re living it up at the Hotel California
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 masters 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 a passage back, to the place I was before
Relax, said the night-man, we are programmed to receive
You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave
