Yeah, so this song rocks but alas, its simply some drumming and Regina belting out low
along with the melody on her keyboard. So, this is my acoustic interpretation of Hotel
Play it right and it sounds pretty awesome.

Regina Spektor - Hotel Song
(Tabbed by Mike Long on 11/24/06)

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Chords used in this song:


        G  G* Em7 Em7*  |   Am
 G  G*  |    D C/G  G  G*
                        |                   |
e--V->--3--3---3---3----C->--0---0---3--3---B->--2--0---3--3--|
B--E->--3--0---3---0----H->--1---1---3--0---R->--3--1---3--0--|
G--R->--0--0---0---0----O->--2---0---0--0---I->--2--0---0--0--|
D--S->--0--0---2---2----R->--2---2---0--0---D->--0--2---0--0--|
A--E->--2--2---2---2----U->--0---3---2--2---G->--0--3---2--2--|
E--!->--3--3---3---3----S->--x---3---2--2---E->--x--3---2--2--|

For the asterisk'd (*) chords, I improvised on the G and Em7 chords, more or less. I
what I've labeled Em7 is not really Em7, but we'll call it that just so we can call the
chord Em7*....ok?....ok!

When making the transition from the G --> G*, simply pull of on the B string, and when
from Em7 --> Em7*, do the same.

I like playing it slower than the original version, and below is the strumming pattern I
works nicely...feel free to strum however you feel like strummin tho ;)

For example, this would be the basic structure of the verses:

                 G          G*         Em7       Em7*
          e---3-33-333---3-33-333---3-33-333---3-33-333---|
          B---3-33-333---0-00-000---3-33-333---0-00-000---|
          G---0-00-000---0-00-000---0-00-000---0-00-000---|
          D---0-00-000---0-00-000---2-22-222---2-22-222---|
          A---2-22-222---2-22-222---2-22-222---2-22-222---|
          E---3-33-333---3-33-333---0-00-000---0-00-000---|
Strumming: ===D=DU=UDU===D=DU=UDU===D=DU=UDU===D=DU=UDU===

--Verse

Floaters in my eyes wake up in a hotel room.
Cigarettes and lies, I am a child, it's too soon.

You will never be my, you will never be my fool, will never be my fool.


--Bridge

D                        C/G
A little bag of cocaine, a little bag of cocaine,

G                                 G*
so who's the girl wearing my dress?

D                       C/G
I figured out her number, its on a paper napkin,

G                          G*
but I don't know her address.


---Verse

I wade downstairs, the porter smiles to me a smile I've bought
With a couple of gold coins, a sign that I've been caught.

--Chorus

I have dreams of orca whales and owls, but I wake up in fear .
You will never be my, you will never be my dear,
will never be my dear, dear friend...

G        C
Ba-da-da-dum-ma, dear dear friend…
Ba-da-da-dum-ma, dear dear friend…
Ba-da-da-dum-ma, dear dear friend…
Ba-da-da-dum-ma…

--Bridge

A little bag of cocaine, a little bag of cocaine,
so who's the girl wearing my dress ?
I figured out her number, its on a paper napkin,
but I don't know her address.

--Verse

Come into my world I've got to show, show, show you.
Come into my bed, I've got to know, know, know you.


--Chorus
I have dreams of orca whales and owls, but I wake up in fear.
You will never be my, you will never be my dear,
will never be my dear, dear friend...

Ba-da-da-dum-ma-bum, dear dear friend…
Ba-da-da-dum-ma-bum, dear dear friend…
Ba-da-da-dum-ma-bum, dear dear friend…
