Take It Easy

TAKE IT EASY
EAGLES
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:
 GC/GAm7/GGC/GAm7/GGG
                                                              Well, I'm a runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my load,
 DC
I've got seven women on my mind.
 GD
 Four that wanna own me, two that wanna stone me,
 CG
one says she's a friend of mine.
 EmCG
Take it easy, take it ea - sy,
 AmCEm
don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
 CGCG
Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand,
 AmCG
just find a place to make your stand and take it easy.
 G
  Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
 DC
and such a fine sight to see:
 GD
it's a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed Ford
 CG
slowin' down to take a look at me.
 EmDCG
Come on, ba - by, don't say may - be.
 AmCEm
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me.
 CGCG
We may lose and we may win though we will never be here again.
 AmCG
So open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy.

 DC

 GD
 Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover,
 CG
she's so hard to find.

Take it easy, take it ea - sy,
