Standin on the corner in Winslow AZ... The corner was actually in Flagstaff, at Route 66 and Switzer Canyon where Jackson Browne stood hitch-hiking and conceived the song. He further explained that when it came time to record the song, he decided "Winslow, Arizona" had a better ring to it than "Flagstaff, Arizona". It was at the old Der Wienerschnitzel, which is now Route 66 Dog Haus. And the girl was driving a Toyota, not a flatbed Ford.
