Lyrics of Take It Easy

Well, I'm running down the road
tryin' to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna stone me,
One says she's a friend of mine
Take It easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own
wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy
Well, I'm a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look
at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
we will never be here again
so open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy
Well I'm running down the road trying to loosen
my load,
got a world of trouble on my mind
lookin' for a lover who won't blow my
cover, she's so hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
don't let the sound of your own
wheels make you crazy
come on baby
don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me, oh oh oh
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy


嗯,我在路上跑
试着放松我的负荷
我有七个在我脑海里的妇女,
四是要以自己的我,
两个想用石头砸我,
一说,她的一位朋友
别紧张,别紧张
不要让自己的声音
你疯了轮子驱动器
弥留之际,而你还可以
甚至不试着去了解
只要找到一个地方,使你的立场
并把它容易
嗯,我就站在一个角落
温斯洛在美国亚利桑那州
这样一个美丽的风景和看
这是一个女孩,我的上帝在一个平板车,
福特放慢脚步下来看一看

来吧,宝贝,不要说也许
我要知道你甜蜜的爱情是
要救我
我们可能会输,但我们可以赢
我们将永远不会再在这里
所以请您打开,我越爬越高了,所以把它容易
嗯,我在路上跑试图放松
我的负荷,
在我心里一个麻烦的世界
想追寻的爱人谁也不会打击我
盖,她很难找到
别紧张,别紧张
不要让自己的声音
车轮使你疯狂
来吧宝贝
不说也许
我要知道你甜蜜的爱情是
要救我,哦,哦,哦
哦,我们很容易得到
我们现在应该放轻松

'Take It Easy' is a song written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, and most famously recorded by the Eagles (with Frey singing lead vocals). It was the band's first single, released on May 1, 1972. It also was the opening track on the band's debut album 'Eagles' and it has become one of their signature songs, included on all of their live and compilation albums. It is one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

Browne originally began writing 'Take It Easy' in 1971 for his own debut album. His friend and then-neighbor Frey heard an early version and liked it so much that Browne gave it to him for his new band. Frey finished the second verse (including the line 'It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford ...') and the resulting single climbed to #12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Bass player Randy Meisner sings the harmony vocal in the beginning of this verse with Frey, but drummer Don Henley is singing harmony at the end of the verse ('Though we will never be here again...). Bernie Leadon provides the lead guitar and distinctive banjo parts, as well as harmony vocals.

Jackson Browne later recorded the song as the lead track on his second album, 'For Everyman' (1973). It has also been covered by several other artists including Billy Mize, Johnny Rivers, and Travis Tritt. Tritt's version, recorded for the tribute album 'Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles', was released as a single in 1993, and peaked at #21 on the 'Billboard' country music charts. The video for Tritt's version featured the Eagles lineup from 1978 to 1980 (precipitating the Eagles' regrouping for a new album and tour the following year).

The second verse of 'Take It Easy' is set in the city of Winslow, Arizona, which responded by erecting a life-size bronze statue and mural commemorating the song, at the Standin' On The Corner Park. The statue stands leaning against a lamp post, securing an acoustic guitar between his right hand and the shoe of his right foot. Above his head, a metal sign, crafted in the style of U.S. Route shields, displays the words 'Standin' on the corner'. The trompe-l'œil mural on the wall behind the statue is that of a fake storefront, and includes what would appear to be the reflection of a red Ford pickup truck driven by a blonde-haired woman. The second floor of the mural features an eagle perched in one of the windows. thumb|340px|left|The 'Take It Easy' statue and mural at [http://maps.google.com/maps?q=35.023482,-110.69806&om=0&z=18&ll=35.023482,-110.69806&spn=0.002025,0.005364&t=k 35°1'24.54' N, 110°41'53.02' W] in Winslow, Arizona The 'corner' is actually that of North Kinsley Avenue and West 2nd Street (eastbound State Route 99) in downtown Winslow.
