On a dark desert highway

^E       ^E  ^D ^D ^D
Cool wind in my hair

^D-^E   ^E  ^D ^D-^D-^D-^E
Warm smell of colitas

^E-^E  ^E    ^D       ^D  ^D-^C-A
Rising up through the air   ~

^E ^E-^E ^D ^C  ^C - ^E
Up ahead in the distance

^C ^E ^E  ^E-^D-^C ^C
I saw a shimmering light

D      ^D      ^D  ^D-^D  ^D  ^C   ^D    ^C    ^E
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

E ^E  ^E  ^E  ^D  ^D  ^D-^E
I had to stop for the night.

There she stood in the doorway;

I heard the mission bell

D   ^D ^D  ^D-^C  ^D ^D-^E
And I was thinking to myself

^E         ^E    ^E   ^E-^E
"This could be heaven

^E   ^E    ^D   ^D  ^D-^C-A
Or this could be Hell"

^E      ^E ^E ^D ^C ^C-^E
Then she lit up a candle

A      ^C        ^E        ^D  ^C  ^C
And she showed me the way

^D          ^D   ^D-^D   ^D   ^C  ^D-^C-^E
There were voices down the corridor,

^D   ^E    ^E   ^E     ^G#  ^E-D
I thought I heard them say

^F - ^F    ^F  ^F  ^F-^F  ^G-^F-^F-^E
Welcome to the Hotel California
