[Verse]
G                   G
        Well, I'm a runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my load,
                        D  C
I've got seven women on my mind.
G                       D
Four that wanna own me, two that wanna stone me,
 C                         G
one says she's a friend of mine. 
        Em            C    G 
Take it easy, take it ea - sy, 
              Am                C                Em 
don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy. 
       C                    G              C           G 
Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand, 
            Am                 C                  G 
just find a place to make your stand and take it easy. 
            G 
Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona 
                D        C 
and such a fine sight to see: 
       G                   D 
it's a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed Ford 
        C                      G 
slowin' down to take a look at me. 
         Em   D             C     G 
Come on, ba - by, don't say may - be. 
        Am                  C            Em 
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me. 
       C               G                  C              G 
We may lose and we may win though we will never be here again. 
        Am               C               G 
So open up, I'm climbin' in, so take it easy.

the first solo is done on the twelfth fret of the G string, basically a 1 bar riff in the G key, you take the g octive 12 and bend it, then work your way down to the open g, then go to the G chord that starts the second verse. that's about it, and great tab man, props on giving the chords for the solo! :D
