On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
A                     E7
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
G                         D
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
Em                                        F#7
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim; I had to stop for the night.

Bm                              F#7
There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell
A                                            E7
And I was thinking to myself, “This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
G                        D
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
Em                                  F#7
There were voices down the corridor I thought I heard them say…

Chorus:
G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California…

Any time of year,(any time of year)you can find it here…

Verse:
Bm                           F#7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Bends
A                                     E7
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
G                                D
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Em                      F#7
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

Bm                           F#7
So I called up the Captain, “Please bring me my wine”
          A                                     E7
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine”
G                                       D
And still those voices are calling from far away,

Wake you up in the middle of the night just to hear them say…

What a nice surprise,(what a nice surprise)bring your alibis…

Verse:
Bm                      F#7
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice
              A                               E7
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
G
And in the master’s chambers, they gathered for the feast
Em
They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can’t kill the beast

Bm                           F#7
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
A                                 E7
I had to find the passage back to place I was before
G                                   D
“Relax” said the night man, “We are programmed to receive.
Em                                   F#7
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave”.

YOU MAYBE RIGHT
Billy Joel

billy joel

intro:     a   (4x)

a
friday night i crashed your party,   

saturday i said i’m sorry
                                                         e
sunday came and trashed me out again.
           bm
i was only having fun,  
                g
wasn’t hurting anyone
             e  
and we all enjoyed the
                           a        intro (2x)
weekend for a change.

                       
i’ve been stranded
in the combat zone,
i walked through bedford sty alone
even rode my motorcycle in the rain.
and you told me not to drive,  
but i made it home alive
so you said that only proves that i’m insane.

chorus:
                      e
you may be right,  
                  a
i may be crazy
            e                     d
but it just may be a lunatic
               f#m         a
you’re looking for
                     e
turn out the light,
                     a
don’t try to save me
                         d                  e                              
you may be wrong for all i know,
                            a      intro (4x)
but you may be right.

                               
remember how i found you there,
alone in your electric chair
i told you dirty jokes until you smiled.
you were lonely for a man,  
i said take me as i am
cause you might enjoy
some madness for a while.
now think of all the years you tried
to find some one to satisfy you
i might be as crazy as you say.
if i’m crazy then it’s true,  
that it’s all because of you
and you wouldn’t want me any other way.

I [Am]wake up in the morning
and the [G]sun begins to shine
[F]the day did sneak up from the [E]night
I [Am]see your face and I see myself
and I [G]get a little taste of life
[F]I try to stand it for a [E]while
chorus:

But I’m in [Am]trance
Hey baby [C]tell me can’t you hear me [G]calling
I’m in [Am]trance
I take too [C]much of the Saturday [G]night
Hey… Hey…[Am]Hey
Hey baby [C]tell me can’t you hear me [G]calling
I’m in [Am]trance
I wanna [C]try to stop this [G]life

I feel so sad I’m feeling down
On the radio the music plays
I’m in love with her and I revive
I close my eyes
I think today is getting better with a sip of wine
and I can stand it for a while

But I’m in trance
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in trance
I take too much of the Saturday night
Hey… Hey
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in trance
I wanna try to stop this life
