TAKE IT EASY

Live 22 Sep 2015 version


Jackson Browne:Well I'm a-running down the road to loosen my load
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

Browne and Springsteen:Take it easy, take it easy
Jackson Browne: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

Bruce Springsteen:I'm a-standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona
With such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford
Slowing down to take a look at me

Bruce Springsteen: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
So open up I'm climbing in and take it easy

Jackson Browne:I'm a-running down the road trying to loosen my load
Got a world of trouble on my mind
I'm looking for a lover who won't blow my cover
She's so hard to find

Jackson Browne:Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Browne and Springsteen:Come on baby, don't say maybe
I've got to know if your sweet love is gonna save me

Browne and Springsteen:Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
Whoa-hoo
