History of the Eagles Part One


There are stars

In the southern sky

Southward as you go-o-o

There is moonlight

And moss in the trees

Down the Seven Bridges Ro-o-oad

- Pretty close.

- Not too bad.

It's gonna be about two

minutes, so come on.

- Do what you got to do.

- We got to go.

I need a wrist band.

It's something that you

can't do forever, you know?

This is not a lifetime career

that we can do, you know? So...

It's not?!

All right, let's go.



Thank you and good evening. We're

the Eagles from Los Angeles.


One, two, three, four.


Well, I'm running down the road

Trying to loosen my load

I got seven women on my mind...

People are always saying things to me like,

"You're just like a normal person. "

And I always say, "Of course!"

Ooh ooh

Ooh ooh!

All right!

We might be a little more

world-wise, you know,

than some of those kids, that's all.

We just maybe have less innocence

than they do, but, I mean,

I eat, I sleep, I fall in love,

I fall out of love, I work.

You know, I do pretty much the same thing.

You got your demons and you got desires

But I got a few of my own

Oooh someone to be kind to

In between the dark and the light

Oooh coming right behind you

Swear I'm gonna find you

one of these nights!

We saw a poster of us when

On the Border was made.

Everybody looked like little kids,

you know, like, early 20s and stuff.

And everybody didn't have their

wrinkles and baggy eyes.

Sort of like a president

when he first takes office.


And then, like four or five

years later, you know,

he just walks out, and his hair is grey,

and his eyes are drooping, and he's

just really, you know, real burned.

Spent the last year Rocky Mountain way

Couldn't get much higher!

The first thing that happens

is you get some kind of label,

then you've got to live up to it, and

then you just get caught in that,

and I forget what the second thing is!


You know I've always been a dreamer

Spend my life running round

And it's so hard to change

It's hard. It's like living two lives.

You know, I have a family, three kids.

And it's just hard to live in

between that line, you know,

of being out on the road and

being away for a month.

Keep on turning out and burning out

And turning out the sa-a-ame

So put me on a highway

And show me a sign

And take it to the limit

One more time.

Maybe we wouldn't want to do this any more,

or maybe we can't do this any more,

or maybe nobody will give a

shit if we do this any more.

Take it to the limit

One more t-i-i-ime.

Thank you.


No, I insist. You first.

Hi, there.

Lock it up.

A hearty bunch out there. Oh, he's

not even here. Now lock it up.

Hey, driver, lock 'em

up for us tonight, ok?

- Out of sight. - You just don't

know what those kids will do.


How about a beer? Is that what I heard?

- You got it, brother.

- Don't hurt yourself, young America.

- Would you like one?

- Yeah, I would like one.

I'm gonna drink tonight.

I think they feel like

they're up there, you know,

like they're on the stage.

Cos we look like them. We dress like them.

Part of it is that, and

part of it's the records.

I think they just relate to the songs.

I think it's 50/50, I guess.

The thing is now is to try to see how long

we can stay up here at

the top of the mountain.

It's very narrow and windy up here.

We can probably continue doing what we're

doing as long as the songs keep coming.

That's the only thing that frightens us,

is to not be able to do that any more.
