A line from "Take It Easy," the 1972 hit by the Eagles, has become the lifeblood of tiny Winslow in Arizona. Winslow's "Standin' on the Corner Park" on the corner of Second Street and Kinsley Avenue, on Route 66, the Mother Road, celebrates the song with the catchy line
..... Well I'm a standin' 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 .....
A cherry-red vintage flatbed Ford truck is parked nearby. And on a brick wall behind the statue and truck is a large mural featuring a grinning blonde in such a truck, who clearly - as the song says - is "slowin' down to take a look" at the itinerant all-American musician who has caught her eye.
Is it worth seeing? Of course it is! It's on RT 66! And to be sure you know that it is, the highway number is painted on the street.
A statue, a mural, a flatbed F-500 Ford and music seemingly coming from out of nowhere makes this a great little street corner park the type of place that makes traveling off the interstate so much more interesting.
