Intro:   [Bm]   [F#]     [A]       [E]       [G]       [D]       [Em]   [F#] x2


v1:       [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


v2:       [Bm]There she stood in the doorway - [F#]I heard the mission bell

            [A]And I was thinking to myself, this could be [E]Heaven or this could be Hell

            [G]Then she lit up a candle, and she [D]showed me the way

            [Em]There were voices down the corridor

            [F#]I thought I heard them say


c1:       [G]Welcome to the Hotel Cali-[D]fornia

            Such a [F#]lovely place, such a lovely place         Such a [Bm]lovely face

            [G]Plenty of room at the Hotel Cali-[D]fornia

            Any [Em]time of year, any time of year                   You can [F#]find it here


v3:       [Bm]Her mind is Tiffany twisted, [F#]she's got the Mercedes bends

            [A]She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys [E]she calls friends

            [G]How they danced in the courtyard - [D]sweet summer sweat

            [Em]Some dance to remember     

            [F#]Some dance to forget


v4:       [Bm]So I called up the Captain, [F#]please bring me my wine, 'n' he said

            [A]We haven't had that spirit here since [E]1969

            [G]And still those voices are calling from [D]far away

            [Em]Wake you up in the middle of the night

            [F#]Just to hear them say


c2:       [G]Welcome to the Hotel Cali-[D]fornia

            Such a [F#]lovely place, such a lovely place         Such a [Bm]lovely face

            [G]They're livin' it up at the Hotel Cali-[D]fornia

            What a [Em]nice surprise, what a nice surprise Bring your [F#]alibis


v5:       [Bm]Mirrors on the ceiling.  [F#]The pink champagne on ice, and she said

            [A]We are all just prisoners here [E]of our own device

            [G]And in the master's chambers, [D]they gathered for the feast

            [Em]They stabbed it with their steely knives

            But they [F#]just can't kill the beast


v6:       [Bm]Last thing I remember I was [F#]running for the door

            [A]I had to find the passage back to the [E]place I was before

            [G]"Relax," said the night man, "We are [D]programmed to receive

            [Em]You can check out any time you like

            [F#]But you can never leave"


Solo/Outtro:   [Bm]   [F#]     [A]       [E]       [G]       [D]       [Em]   [F#] x4
