Take It Easy

Year: 1972 - Album: The Very Best of the Eagles [2001]

(Browne / Frey)

	  		I have to give credit for chords and lyrics to my pal at Cornell Dan Smith, 
he had it all done, my contrabution was the electric INTRO, SOLO, and OUTRO. 

INTRO: 
        G       C2   Dsus4 
        G       C2   Dsus4 

G                   G 
        Well, I'm a runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my load, 
                        D  C 
I've got seven women on my mind. 
G                       D 
Four that wanna own me, two that wanna stone me, 
 C                         G 
one says she's a friend of mine.  
        Em            C    G  
Take it easy, take it ea - sy,  
              Am                C                Em  
don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.  
       C                    G              C           G  
Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand,  
            Am                 C                  G  
just find a place to make your stand and take it easy.  
  
            G  
Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona  
                D        C  
and such a fine sight to see:  
       G                   D  
it's a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed Ford  
        C                      G  
slowin' down to take a look at me.  
         Em   D             C     G  
Come on, ba - by, don't say may - be.  
        Am                  C            Em  
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me.  
       C               G                  C              G  
We may lose and we may win though we will never be here again.  
        Am               C               G  
So open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy.

Well, I'm a runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my load,  
                       D     C  
got a world of trouble on my mind.  
G                       D  
Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover,  
      C          G  
she's so hard to find.  
        Em            C    G  
Take it easy, take it ea - sy,  
              Am                C                Em  
don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.  
         C    G             C     G  
Come on, ba - by, don't say may - be.  
        Am                 C             G  
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me.
