Standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona

Standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
Such a fine sight to see
Its 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
  (The Eagles, "Take It Easy")

Well, the corner is there, on a stretch of old Route 66. All four corners of the intersection, in fact, all adorned with those words, and Eagles tributes, Route 66 tributes and Eagles music playing.

Talking about the Eagles...

Twenty-one and strong as i can be
I know what freedom means to me
And i can't give the reason why
I should ever want to die
Got no cause to be afraid
Or fear that life will ever fade
'cause as i watch the rising sun
I know that we have just begun
I might spend my life upon the road
Just tryin' to add to what i know
Then someday i might settle down
And all my friends will be around

  ("Twenty One")
