Hotel California by Eagles, Lyrics with Guitar Chords

October 11, 2013, by tapan, category Eagles, Lyrics with Chords

Bm                                           F#
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
A                                     E
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
G                                            D
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Em
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
F#
I had to stop for the night

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

Chorus :

G                                          D
Welcome to the Hotel California.
Em                                 Bm7
Such a lovely place, such a lovely face
G                                                 D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Em                                                          F#
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
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”

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!’

So, what do you think ?
