Heard it on the X Lyrics - ZZ Top

Review The Song (2)



Do you remember
back in nineteen sixty-six?
Country Jesus, hillbilly blues,
that's where I learned my licks.
Oh, from coast to coast and line to line
in every county there,
I'm talkin' 'bout that outlaw X
that was cuttin' through the air.

Anywhere, y'all,
everywhere, y'all,
I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it on the X.

We can all thank Doctor B
who stepped across the line.
With lots of watts he took control,
the first one of its kind.

So listen to your radio
most each and every night
'cause if you don't I'm sure you won't
get to feeling right.

Anywhere, y'all,
everywhere, y'all,
I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it on the X.

- Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard

Outlaw X! | Reviewer: JayCeezy | 8/24/12

Saw them in 2012, this song was part of their encore. ZZ Top has a promotion with Sirius XM, which has a channel called "Outlaw Country", a lot of fun. They still bring it, saw them in '80 and '83. As Rev. Willie G says, "same 3 guys...same 3 chords!"

Rowdy Rocker from ZZ | Reviewer: Doc Jock | 10/20/07

With a relentlessly churning tex-mex rhythm fired by a toothy, rauchious close-miked guitar and groovaciously placed up-beat handclaps, "X" is a rollicking remeniscance of the golden era of offshore bootleg radio, when jocks like Wolfman Jack and the above cited Doctor B would broadcast from barges in the Gulf of Mexico, spinning sides at the time considered too exotic for general consumption. One of, if not my fave selection from "that little ol' band from Texas!
