"Hotel Yorba" is the lead single from White Blood Cells, by The White Stripes, and their first single to be released commercially. It was released in November 2001. It has a country feel and an upbeat vibe. The Hotel Yorba is a former hotel in southwest Detroit that is now used as government subsidized housing, and the single version was recorded in a room there. The White Stripes shot much of the song's music video outside the hotel, but were denied permission to film inside; according to Jack White, the duo is "sort of banned for life" from the hotel. The song is primarily built around three chords G, C and D, but a fourth, F, is also heard. (Source: Wikipedia)

Hotel Yorba - The White Stripes

I was watching
with one eye on the other side
I had 15 people tellin me don t move
I got movin on my mind
I found shelter
In some thoughts turning wheels around
I said 39 times that I love you
To the beauty I had found

Well, it s 1-2-3-4 take the elevator
at the Hotel Yorba I ll be glad to see ya later
all they got inside is vacancy

I ve been thinkin
of a little place down by the lake
They got a dirty old road leading up to the house
I wonder how long it will take
Till we re alone
Sittin on the front porch of that home
Stompin our feet on the wooden boards
Never gotta worry bout lockin the door

Well, it s 1-2-3-4 take the elevator
at the Hotel Yorba I ll be glad to see ya later
all they got inside is vacancy

It might sound silly
for me to think childish thoughts like these
But i m so tired of actin tough
And i m gonna do what I please
Lets get married
in a big cathedral by a priest
Cause if i m the man that you love the most
You could say "I do" at least

Well, it s 1-2-3-4 take the elevator
at the Hotel Yorba I ll be glad to see ya later
all they got inside is vacancy

And it s 4-5-6-7 grab your umberella
and grab hold of me cause I m your favorite fella
All they got inside is vacancy
