Song: Victim Of Love Tab



Hotel California
1976

I had a request for this, and it is an incredibly easy song to play,
so I'm gonna put it up.  There are basically two guitar parts,
one that plays power chords and Felder's slide guitar.  Notice that
Felder's guitar has the 1st string tuned dowm to D.  Have fun, and
good luck Chris.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
GUITAR 1 is the lead guitar here, it plays the slide stuff.
	Tune 1st string to D, so you are tuned (low to high) EADGBd

GUITAR 2 plays power chords:	G5	355xxx
				C5	x355xx
				A5	x022xx
				Bb5	x133xx

This is the first verse.  GUITAR 2 plays the power chords,
and GUITAR 1 plays the slide stuff (with a slide).

Now the chorus.  GUITAR 2 plays power chords, GUITAR 1
does the slide stuff.  Remember to tune down 1st sring to D.

This is the first part of the second verse.  It just adds the
slide-downs.
After this part, they add the chicka to GUITAR 2, just scratch your
strings
before playing the power chords.  GUITAR 1 repeats this figure with
the
slide-downs in the second part.

   Some people..                        I think you..

The next chorus is the same as the first, with a slight difference at
the end to lead into the solo.  Speaking of the solo, this is it:

GUITAR 1
   What kind of love...             got?

Then the chorus comes in again, and they do some repetitions
which are easy to figure out, and the end looks something like this:

  got?                            What kind of love have you got?
      +     +      +      +       +      +      +      +        +    +

These are the lyrics:

What kind of love have you got?
You should be home, but you're not
A room full of noise and dangerous boys
still makes you thirsty and hot

I heard about you and that man
There's just one thing I don't understand
You say he's a liar and he put out your fire
How come you still got his gun in your hand?

Victim of love , I see a broken heart
You got your stories to tell
Victim of love, it's such an easy part
and you know how to play it so well

Some people never come clean 
I think you know what I mean
You're walkin' the wire, pain and desire
Looking for love in between 

Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you mine 
This ain't no time to be cool
And tell all your girlfriends,
you "been around the world" friends
that talk is for losers and fools

Victim of love, I see a broken heart
I could be wrong, but I'm not
Victim of love, we're not so far apart
Show me, what kind of love have you got?

Victim of love, you're just a victim of love
I could be wrong , but I'm not
Victim of love, now you're a victim of love
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?
