I had such a weird dream last night.
[Verse] 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 [Verse] Bm F# Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends A E She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends G D How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. Em Some dance to remember, some dance to forget Bm F# So I called up the Captain, 'Please bring me my wine' A E He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine' G D And still those voices are calling from far away, Em Wake you up in the middle of the night F# Just to hear them say... [Chorus] G D Welcome to the Hotel California Em Bm7 Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place), Such a lovely face G D They livin' it up at the Hotel California Em F# What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), Bring your alibis [Verse] Bm F# Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice A E And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device' G D And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast Em They stab it with their steely knives, F# But they just can't kill the beast Bm F# Last thing I remember, I was running for the door A E I had to find the passage back to the place I was before G D 'Relax,' said the night man, 'We are programmed to receive. Em You can check-out any time you like, F# But you can never leave!'
