I need to get this question out to a wider audience because no one I've asked (or google) has been any help...

I don't know if you're familiar with the Highwaymen (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings), but they had a #1 Country song in 1985: "Highwayman." Here's the video on YouTube (

Anyway, at the 1:25 mark, Waylon Jennings has the line "... where steel and water did collide..."

SOMEONE sampled that snippet. One friend swears it was on a Beastie Boys track. I'm not sure. I've been listening to a lot of their stuff very carefully and I can't find it. It might be rap, it might be something from TV. But it's been eating away at my brain for over a week, and I thought I'd look for help here.

Can anyone help me?
