Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of cactus rising up through the air

The men star right one time around
Left allemande and promenade the set
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way round
Walk in pass the ocean here, extend
Swing thru, boys run, ferris wheel
Center pass thru, left allemande, walk by one
Take the next and promenade
*Some dance to remember, some dance to forget


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*There were voices down the hall
I thought I heard them say...

Hotel California
 
 

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 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
(You can find it here)

Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She's got the Mercedes bends
She's 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 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're livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
(What a nice surprise)
Bring your alibies

Mirrors on the ceiling
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 nightman
"We are programmed to recieve
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave"

Lyrics by Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Don Felder.
Recorded by The Eagles.
