Today is my father’s birthday.

(On 8/12 it’ll be a year to his death.)

It’s funny how songs with the word “Easy” remind me of him… Like this one.

It’s been a while since I’ve been thinking about this song, Take It Easy by The Eagles, we once heard together on the radio – on a classic rock station. We were driving together in the car… Maybe it was during one of our trips together… Maybe we were on vacation… Or maybe it was during one of his visits with us and maybe Junior was in the car too, listening and watching us sing…

I remember the weather was nice and sunny, and we had fun.

Sun, summer, singing, driving… This combination always makes me feel so free.

I loved to hear him sing and play his guitar.

He sang beautifully and he knew all the words.

I joined him in the chorus and we sang together…

 

Take It Easy by The Eagles

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
