Recording from California Gig

I just recently got to play out in SoCal for a few dates with Jason Crisp and JR Lozano and man we tore it up!

Here is a live recording of us doing Leanin’ Load written by my friend Lewis Dickson.

A little about this song:

Lewis Dickson and I became friends during my time in Austin. Aside from being an ace defense attorney and wine maker (click on his name above for his website) he also can pen some great lyrics! This song in particular he wrote about living across the street from Billy Gibbons when they grew up in Houston. At some point BB King came by Billy’s house and Lewis saw him in a big Emerald Green Cadillac. Both Billy and Lewis referred to these cars as ‘loads’ because of their size, then add the term “Leaning Load” and you get something like this:

 Leanin’ Load

Here are the words:

Well, Ya know I can roll as I pass you on by

Cuz I’ll be leanin in this load and it makes you smile

See I’m ridin’ heavy, don’t even have to try

best get ready I’m gonna double back in a while

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Emerald Green Sparkle, Can’t have to much chrome

Don’t worry about home cuz we out on the roam

It’s all custom right down to the bit

We gonna roll in this load till it’s past time to split!

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Look out now! Fixin’ to pass you on by!!

(this version I only sang three verses)

You aint got to be no gangsta for real

You lookin good pretty baby and you know how I feel

Just lean over some and don’t be ‘axin’ why

It;s all right here everything money can buy

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Dig this leanin load, gonna eat up that road

Lewis Dickson
