  • Hotel California, The Eagles Guitar Lesson :)

    [Verse 1: Don Henley]
    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 she showed me the way
    There were voices down the corridor
    I thought I heard them say

    "Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Hotel California
    Any time of year
    You can find it here"

    [Verse 2]
    Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
    She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys 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 my wine"
    He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since 1969"
    And still those voices are calling from far away
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to hear them say

    "Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
    Such a lovely face
    They living it up at the Hotel California
    What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
    Bring your alibis"

    [Verse 3]
    Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice
    And she said: "We are all just prisoners here of our own device"
    And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast
    They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't 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 receive
    You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave!"
