"Take It Easy" as written by and Jimmy/fields Mc Hugh....
Well I'm a-running down the road trying to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind
Four that want to own me, two that want to 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-standin' on the corner in Winslow, Arizona
With 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've got to know if your sweet love is gonna save me
We may lose and we may win
But we will never be here again
Open up I'm climbin' in to take it easy

Well I'm a-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 just a little hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Come on baby, don't say maybe
I've got to know if your sweet love is gonna save me

You know we got it easy
We oughta take it easy

    General CommentI do to. The Eagles' version may be a little harder rockin', but this one has a truer feeling to it.

    General CommentI like both fairly evenly, becuz of the banjo in
    the Eagles version played by Bernie Leadon,
    and the Jackson vocals - it's pretty cool that
    in some of Jackson's versions of this, he sings
    "She's just a little hard to find" instead of "She's
    so hard to find" - obviously this is one of his lines
    and not from Glenn Frey
