Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy

Song Lyrics[edit]

  • Now if I seem to be afraid
    To live the life that I have made in song
    Well it's just that I've been losing so long.
  • These days I sit on cornerstones
    And count the time in quarter-tones to ten, my friend
    Don't confront me with my failures
    I had not forgotten them.
  • 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.
  • 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 have a look at me.
  • Make it on your own if you think you can.
    If you see somewhere to go, I understand.
    • For Everyman, from For Everyman (1973)
  • Into a dancer you have grown from the seeds somebody else has sown
    • For a Dancer
  • Out into the cool of the evening strolls the pretender. He knows that all his hopes and dreams begin and end there.
  • I'm gonna be a happy idiot and struggle for the legal tender. Where the ads take aim and lay their claim to the heart and the soul of the spender. And believe in whatever may lie in those things that money can buy, though true love could have been a contender
  • Are you there? Say a prayer for the pretender
    who started out so young and strong only to surrender
  • I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through.
    Looking into their eyes I see them running too.
    • Running on Empty
