Standing On A Corner In Winslow Arizona

What an unfortunate day of construction for the Google car to go through this poor old town of 9,900 people. A population that has stayed the same since the heady days of old Route 66 when the train station, airport, and local businesses were buzzing with activity and business. Now, Winslow is a town decimated, with stores empty, rundown properties, and really quite little going on. Except for at the corner of North Kinsley and the old Route 66, where the Standing On The Corner store is receiving visitors from all over the world, coming to see what the whole store is about, and to see the corner, the wall and the flatbed Ford.

Sandra Myers runs the store with help from the whole family. Browse the store to sweet sounds of the Eagles, pick up some TShirts, skull caps, posters and all kinds of other Route 66 memorabilia. For more information about their store, call 928.289.3863, or email onthecorner66@gmail.com.

The red flatbed Ford can be see on the far left, parked in front of the wall mural.

Eagles, “Take It Easy” Lyrics

Well, I’m running down the road
Tryin’ to loosen my load
I’ve got seven women on My mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna 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 standing on a corner In Winslow, Arizona
And 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 gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
We will never be here again
So open up, I’m climbin’ in,
So take it easy

Well I’m 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 so hard to find.

Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own
Wheels make you crazy
Come on baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
Gonna save me, oh oh oh
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy
