Robbie Robertson, the legendary guitarist and songwriter for "The Band" was so taken with his recent meal at the new Highland Park pizzeria Triple Beam Pizza that he rewrote the lyrics to one of their classic songs, "The Weight",.
I pulled into Highland Park, was feeling 'bout half past starved
I just needed some place, where I can get some pizza carved
Hey, mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a slice?
He just grinned and pointed and said “Triple Beam is where to throw your dice”.
Take a load off Matty, take a load for free
Take a load off David, and you put the load right on me
I walked the place, expecting a triple shot of bourbon Instead I saw a joint, that was just about hipster urban
Hey mister can you tell me, how the hell do I order? He smiled and looked at me and asked 'center cut or border'?
Get to cooking ‘ol Matty, weigh some pizza for me
Don’t forget to tell DR, my pizza is always free
Hey mister can you tell me, is the Beam a real scene? He just smiled and looked at me and said "Look over there, that's Kate Green"
Darn that slice was good, and I'll be back on Figueroa I pretty sure Nancy Silverton, had her hands in the making of that dougha
Take a load off Randy, take a load for free
Take a load off April, and you put the load right on me
