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?

Just in case you thought Dark Was the Night (The W) was too downtrodden for your musical tastes, Waxplotation will be releasing another Causes album. This album, like the last, will go towards in the efforts in Darfur.
