[Verse 1]

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair,
warm smell of colitas rising up through the air,
Up ahead in the distance I saw a shimmering light,
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, I had to stop for the night,
There she stood in the doorway, i heard the mission bell,
and i was thinking to myself "This could be heaven or this could be hell",
Then she lit up a candle and showed me the way,
Thedre were voices down the corridor I thought i heard them say'


[Chorus]

Welcome to the hotel California
such a lovely place, (such a lovely place) such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel California
Any time of Year (any time of year) you can find it here


[Verse 2]

Her mind is tiffany twisted
she got her mercedes bends
she got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
So I called up the captain
"Please bring me the wine"
He said, "We havent had that spirit here since 1969"
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say


[Chorus]

Welcome to the hotel California
such a lovely place, (such a lovely place) such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel California
Any time of Year (any time of year) you can find it here


[Verse 3]

Mirrors on the ceiling 
The pink champagne on ice
and she said "We are all just prisoners here on our own device"
And in the masters chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
but they just cant kill the beast
Last thing i remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place i was before
"Relax" said the night man
"we are programmed to recieve"
you can check out any time you like
But you can never leave.

You could just use the guitar as the melody.

The choppy lyrics was a little confusing
