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

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
and I was thinking to my self
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:

     G                        D
    Welcome to the Hotel California
  Em
    such a lovely place,  such a lovely place
            Hm
    such a lovely face
     G                        D
    Plenty of room at the Hotel California
  Em
    any time of year, any time of year
             F#7
    you can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany twisted
she got the Mersedes-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 nineteen sixty nine"
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're livin up at the Hotel California
        what a nice surprise
            what a nice surprise
        bring you're alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
the pink champange on ice and she said:
We are all just prisoners here
of our own device
And in the masters chambers
they gathered for the feast
they stabbed 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 nightman
we are programmed to receive
you can check out any time you like
but you can never leave

Primechaniya:

colitas             zlakovoe rastenie v Kalifornii
Voobshche-to burzhui pishut, chto "colitas - something to eat", vrode kak
meksikanskij termin (alt.music.lyrics FAQ)

Tiffany             ves'ma populyarnaya v te gody pevichka
                    [Q] A ne set'  dorogih magazinov ? - may be i tak

"Hotel California"  tak nazyvali Los-Andzhelesskuyu gorodskuyu tyur'mu

Po drugoj interpretacii: eto durdom v LA

A  po  povodu  "pink  champange  on  ice" ya odno vremya, greshnym
delom, zadumyvalsya - a chto-by eto takoe rozovoe  moglo  byt'...
Odnako ved' dejstvitel'no - byvaet, hot' i ochen' redko.

From: pwk@taichu.marine.su (Paul W. Karpenko)

>: Poprobuem povspominat® 1975 god (pesnya napisana vo vtoroj ego polovine,
>: pripominaetsya, tochnee - perepisana s We used to know, kotoruyu mozhno
>: najti na diske Stand up ne menee znamenitogo kollektiva Jethro Tull.
>

Istoriya takova:

 V  1971  g. Jethro Tull sovershal tur po SSHA v predverii vyhoda
odioznogo   proekta   Aqualung.   Podderzhivala   tur    sovsem,
prakticheski,  neizvestnaya gruppa molodyh hipanov nazvannaya (kak
by ne potom) Eagles. Po toj pore svoih pesen ne imevshaya.
 Nesmotrya  na svoyu zamknutost® i nedobrozhelatel®nost®, Anderson
ne vozrazhal protiv ispolneniya nekotoryh svoih pesen.
 Vposledstvii,   kak   izvestno,   Eagles,   blagodarya   svoemu
kalifornijskomu  posthipovskomu   zvuchaniyu,   dobilis®   ves®ma
neplohoj   prodavaemosti  svoih  diskov,  chto,  po-amerikanski,
oznachaet uspeh.

 Razumeetsya,  ideya  pesni  "We  used  to  know",  vyrazhennaya  v
poslednej stroke (But for your own sake remember times we  used
to  know)  ves®ma daleka ot kompleksa idej zaklyuchennyh v "Hotel
California", eto i ponyatno - drugaya  strana,  drugie  problemy,
dazhe  drugoe vremya, no, v muzykal®nom plane, Hotel California -
eto lish® chut®-chut® izmenennaya "We used to know".

 Na   vseh  koncertah,  nachinaya  primerno  s  1980g.,  Anderson
pokazyvaet veselyj tryuk - kak sdelat® "Hotel California" iz "We
used  to  know".  Osnovnoe razlichie zaklyuchaetsya v tom, chto WUTN
ispolnyaetsya, bol®shej chast®yu  na  akusticheskoj  gitare,  kotoraya
prakticheski  polnost®yu  zabivaetsya  golosom  i solo ispolnyaetsya
odnim Barom na odnoj gitare -  eto  koncertnyj  nomer  dlya  4-h
muzykantov,  a  vot  Eagles  igrayut,  kak  izvestno, v 3 gitary
elektricheskih, soedinyaya pri etom  elementy  Barovskogo  solo  s
banal®nym boem akkordov.

 V  interv®yu,  kotoroe Joe Walsh dal Devidu Risu (hozyainu A New
Day) on ne stal otricat®  fakt  zaimstvovaniya,  no,  sovershenno
rezonno zametil, chto uspeh HC prevzoshel uspeh WUTN.

 Hotya  sleduet vspomnit®, chto Stand Up dve nedeli byl nomerom 1
v Anglii, a Thick As A Brick i A Passion Play  -  po  8  nedel®
pervym nomerom v SSHA.  Mogut li Eagles pohvastat® podobnym?  No
eto uzhe sovsem drugaya tema.
