Just find a place to make your stand,  and take it easy 

Verse 2

 G
Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona

This is a flipping brilliant transcription, works really well when played with the Farewell I tour video on Youtube. (Particularly good for ukulele, as well.)

naccoachbob (report comment to admin):
The tuning is standard. I've determined all the chords for the instrumental lead-in: G C D G C D

For the instrumental break:
G D C G D C G Em D C G Am C Em D
can't give you the duration with this comment, but it works well. I just found out about the D at the end of the break, by watching someone's youtube. Enjoy
Bob

Not sure about the D's after the Em's at the end of the 6th line of each verse. I've also seen it in the area of "take it ea----sy where a D is put on the "sy" part or "Come on ba---by" at the by part. Would love to know what others think. Neither one sounds "bad", but is it right?

Also at the very end after "your sweet love is gonna save me" it goes to:
C G C G C G C G C and Em for one strum.
Cheers
Bob
