Last Christmas Ivan and I drove from Michigan to Arizona. We spent about 3 weeks with his family, and we needed to bring our dog along with us, so flying wasn’t an option. On the way back home, I insisted that we make a pit stop in Winslow.
Winslow is a rather small town, but apparently until the 1960’s Winslow was the largest town in Northern Arizona. At any rate, it’s been immortalized by the words from the Eagle’s song, “Take it Easy”.
It goes like this…
“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”
I’ve also heard that there is an annual “Standin’ on the Corner Festival” at the “Standin’ on the Corner Park” featuring classic rock bands as well as an Eagles tribute band. Who’d have thought. Got to love Roadside America.
