F	Bb	       C		  F	        F/A
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
          Bb	        C                   Dm
I was staring in my empty coffee cup,
          A                         A7                  Dm        Gm
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn't lyin',
            Fsus4                             F              Csus4
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles,  I'm gonna drink 'em up

            Bb	     C          Bb       F
And if California slides into the ocean,
	   Bb	          Am         Gm    F
Like the mystics and statistics say it will,
Ddim6			         Am         Gm                 F
I predict this Motel will be standing, until I pay my bill.
(Bb - C)

                       Bb  Am  Gm    C                 F
But don't the sun look angry through the trees,
	    Bb    Am         Gm    C    Dm
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves,
                  Dm			       Gm7
Don't you feel like desperados under the eaves,
Gm7                 Csus4  C   Fsus4   F
Heaven help the one who leaves.

Gm					Dm
Still waking up in the morning with shaking hands,
	   F				    C       Dm
And I'm trying to find a girl who understands me,
	A			A7	       Dm    C
But except in dreams you're never really free,
	     Bb  Am  Gm    C  F
Don't the sun look angry at me.
          Bb	       C		  F	      F/A
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel,
          Bb                     C                      Dm
I was listening to the air conditioner hum,  It went,

(Dm   F/C  F)            (Bb  F  C)
Look away down, Gower avenue, look away.
