[F#7] x 2 

[Bm] On a dark desert highway  
[F#7] 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#7] I had to stop for the night 

[Bm] There she stood in the doorway  
[F#7] 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  
[D] and she showed me the way 

[Em] There were voices down the corridor  
[F#7] I thought I heard them say 

[G] Welcome to the Hotel Cali  

Such a  
[Em] lovely place such a  
[Bm] lovely face 

[G] Plenty of room at the Hotel Cali  

[Em] time of year you can  
[F#7] find it here 

[Bm] Her mind is Tiffany twisted  
[F#7] she got the Mercedes bends 

[A] She got a lot of pretty pretty boys  
[E] that she calls friends 

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

[Em] Some dance to remember  
[F#7] some dance to forget 

[Bm] So I called up the captain  
[F#7] please bring me my wine 

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#7] just to hear them say 


[Bm] Mirrors on the ceiling  
[F#7] 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 stab it with their steely knives but they  
[F#7] just can't kill the beast 

[Bm] Last thing I remember I was  
[F#7] running for the door 

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

[G] Relax said the nightman we are  
[D] programmed to receive 

[Em] You can check out anytime you like  
[F#7] but you can never leave 

[G] Welcome to the Hotel Cali  

Such a  
[Em] lovely place such a  
[Bm] lovely face 

[G] livin' it up at the Hotel Cali  

What a  
[Em] nice surprise bring your  
[F#7] alibis
