“I’m 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”
“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”
to run down the road to try my load to own to stone a friend of mine the sound of your wheels drive you crazy find a place to make your stand provare il mio carico, peso possedere una mia amica il suono delle tue: trova un luogo per realizzarti

“I’m standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona”
“and such a fine sight to see”
“it’s a girl, My Lord, in a flat-bed Ford”
“slowing down to have a look at me”
“Come on, baby don’t say maybe I’ve got to know if your sweet love is going to save me”
“We may lose and we may win, but we will never be here again, open up, I’m climbing in, but take it easy”.
Take it easy is a song by the American singer- songwriter Jackson Browne.
It is taken from Browne’s second album, “For everyman” (1973), but he wrote it one year earlier; the Eagles were the first to record this song (in their first album, in 1972) and to perform it live.
Jackson Browne wrote the music and most of the lyrics. Eagles’ Glenn Frey completed the lyrics, writing part of the second and the whole third verse. The Eagles made this song famous.
Clyde Jackson Browne (born October 9, 1948) is a singer-songwriter and musician who has sold over 18 million albums in the United States. Coming to prominence in the 1970s, Browne has written and recorded many beautiful songs. In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Abbey San Encino was built by Jackson Browne’s grandfather. It is a true architectural wonder and was declared Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument on November 15, Browne was born in Heidelberg (Germany), where his father, Clyde Jack Browne, an American serviceman, was stationed for his job assignment with the Stars and Stripes newspaper. Browne's mother, Beatrice Amanda, was a Minnesota native of Norwegian ancestry. Browne moved to the Highland Park district of Los Angeles, at the age of three, to his grandfather's house, Abbey San Encino (you can see this house on the cover of For Everyman).
