          G
Well, I'm running down the road trying to loosen my load
                  D     C
I got seven women on my mind
G                         D
Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
C                          G
one says she's a friend of mine

        Em             C G
Take it easy.  Take it easy
              Am                C                Em
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
        C                   G
Lighten up, while you still can
           C           G
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 standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
            D        C
such a fine sight to see
       G                   D
It's a girl, my lord, in a flat bed Ford
        C                      G
slowing down to take a look at me

        Em D              C  G
Come on ba-by.  Don't say maybe
         Am                 C             Em
I got to know if your sweet love is gonna save me
       C                G
We may lose, and we may win
               C              G
Though we will never be here again
        Am               C              G
So open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy

I got a world of trouble on my mind
G                       D
Looking 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 easy
              Am                C               Em
Don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy
        C G              C  G
Come on baby.  Don't say maybe
