Lyrics

Blue Hotel
On a lonely highway
Blue Hotel
Life don't work out my way

Blue Hotel
On a lonely highway
Blue Hotel
Life don't work out my way
I wait alone each lonely night

Blue Hotel
Blue Hotel

Blue Hotel
Every room is lonely
Blue Hotel
I was waiting only
The night and the light of her lonely dream

Blue Hotel
Blue Hotel

Blue Hotel
On a lonely highway
Blue Hotel
Life don't work out my way
I wait alone each lonely night

Blue Hotel

Riff 1 isnt good, it has to be:

|---------------2--1-|
|---------------2--1-|
|---------------3--2-|
|-------3-4--3--4--3-|
|-1---4---------4--3-|
|---------------2--1-|

Riff 2 isnt correct either.
