"Low Rider" as written by Sylvester Allen, Harold Ray I. Brown, Morris Dewayne Dickerson, Le Roy L. Jordan, Charles Miller, Lee Oskar, Howard E. Scott and Jerry Goldstein....
All my friends know the low rider
The low rider is a little higher

Low rider drives a little slower
Low rider is a real goer

Low rider knows every street, yeah
Low rider is the one to meet, yeah

Low rider don't use no gas now
Low rider don't drive too fast

Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me

    General CommentYep, the song is about the West Coast Low-riders, referring to the pimped out cars with lowered suspensions. But of course, there is also an undeniable marijuana-related element present in the song. It's particularly noticeable in the lines 'The low rider is a little higher' and 'The low rider drives a little slower'. Of course it's also referring to the fact that the low riders like to drive really slowly to parade around their vehicles, but there's also another group of people who like to drive slowly too. Great song in any case.

    General CommentNot trying to rag on anyone's rides or anything, but this is actually about lowrider motorcycles. Hell Angels, Choppers, etc... Perhaps one of the greatest driving songs ever created.

    General CommentThis song is great. Eric Burdons voice is so sexy, he was great when he was the lead singer of The Animals too.

    General CommentThe song is about the West Coast Latino subculture. They were "Low Riders" due to the fact that they commonly drove lowered cars. Most of the band grew up in the Southern California area and were immersed in the "Low Rider" culture.

    Anyways, great song.
