"Well, I'm standin' on the 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." That's the line in written by Jackson Brown and Glen Frey in the song “Take it Easy” and recorded by the Eagles. Winslow, Arizona intends to take it for everything its worth, in an effort to draw tourists to their sleepy little desert town 100 miles from the Grand Canyon on Route 66.
