Pulled over to the river, to take a rest

from Beastie Boys – High Plains Drifter Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Normally a hero/villan in a classic Western might stop at river to refesh himself and/or let his horse drink. Here, the 3 Emcees have pulled over in a car. Sorta like a rest stop, but not like when this hitch-hiker and Ben Stiller used a rest stop in “Something about Mary.”
