"Walking Slow" is a song written and performed by American singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, released as the initial single from his 1974 classic album, Late for the Sky, however, the single failed to chart.[1][2] It was also released as a promotional single in the United Kingdom.[3]


Stephen Holden, in his November 7, 1974, review of the Late for the Sky album, called the song "a crisp little rock song." Discussing the song in terms of the narrative progression of the album, Holden said the song celebrated "Browne's newfound domestic stability."[4]


Professional jug band musician Fritz Richmond is credited with playing jug on the track.[5]
