Intro:
Bm | F# | A | E | G | D | Em | F# (x2)

Verse 1:
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
There she stood in the doorway,
F#
I heard the mission bell
A
And I was thinking to myself,
              E
This could be heaven or this could be hell
G                                D
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
Em
There were voices down the corridor,
F#
I thought I heard them say...

Chorus 1:
G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California;
       F#
Such a lovely place,
       Bm
Such a lovely face
G                               D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California,
    Em                    F#
Any time of year, you can find it here

Verse 2:
Bm                           F#
Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
A                                          E
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
G                                D
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Em                      F#
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

Bm            
So I called up the captain,
F#
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 2:
G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California;
       F#
Such a lovely place,
       Bm
Such a lovely face
G                                     D
They're living it up at the Hotel California
       Em                        F#
What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Verse 3:
Bm          
Mirrors on the ceiling,
F#
The pink champagne on ice
             A                               E
And she said we are all just prisoners here, of our own device
G        
And in the master's chambers,
D
They gathered for the feast
Em
The stab it with their steely knives,
         F#
But they just can't kill the beast

Bm
Last thing I remember, I was
F#
Running for the door
A
I had to find the passage back,
       E
To the place I was before
G
Relax, said the night man,
       D
We are programmed to receive.
Em
You can checkout any time you like,
F#
But you can never leave!

Outro:
Bm | F# | A | E | G | D | Em | F# (x5)

  1. Great information on the chords for Hotel California, my absolute favorite song by the Eagles. Tells you how old I am…. LOL Anyway, this is a fantastic site for guitar players. My son has pestered me for quite some time to get a guitar. I keep telling him he has no time, which he doesn’t 🙂
