We're Coming in Loaded

3.6 / 5

Words & Music: Winfield Scott Otis Blackwell

Ooh yes we're comin' in loaded, Ooh yes we're comin' in loaded
I'll hold the boat steady brother like a rock
Full speed a head until we hit the dock
We're heading for home, the fishing was great
We're comin' in loaded 'cause we're all out of bait
Well, well, well, well, well
Oh well now yeah!

We gottem packed to the water-line
Some got away but the catch was fine
Never saw such big ones, m'man oh man,
We're comin' in loaded just as fast as we can
Well, well, well, well, well
Oh well now yeah!

I'm gonna see my baby soon as I get back
Knock on the door with my pockets packed
She'll look at me well she can't say no
We're comin' in loaded so come on let's go
Well, well, well, well, well
Oh well now yeah!
Oh well now yeah!
Yeah! we're comin' in loaded

its too bad the lyrics are film related and it is so short , because this is great gospel style rocker. would have made a great song with normal lyrics and running time.

One of the best songs from the film along with the title song and RTS. No surprise considering the writers but a dreadful soundtrack overall. The decline in quality songs had surely begun with the other hack writers assigned to the movies. An album I never listen to.

Not the worst song of that picture. It doesn´t say that much, when both picture and soundtrack was quite awful. It was too many songs, and that kind of detroyed the movie. And the songs were not good either.

This dreadful song makes me want to get loaded.

Fun soundtrack tune. Nothing more or less. One of my "guilty" pleasures. You'll have to excuse me. I'm off to listen to the FTD version of this soundtrack. Even more to enjoy.

A situational song that works well in the movie and on the LP. The movie "Girls! Girls! Girls! is a very pleasant, enjoyable movie and this song is on par with the movie. This song was the last song on the LP and after a promising start, it didn't have enough really strong tracks to make it one of his better soundtrack LP's. Still, the soundtrack is better than the ones from "Kissin' Cousins", "Harum Scarum" and "Paradise, Hawaiian Style", by a long shot. It is enjoyable (minus a couple of tracks), although side B is a let down after the great song "Return To Sender" gets it started. This side really could have used at least one more outstanding song to go along with "RTS".

A short movie song which finds Elvis in good voice. The song has almost a gospel feel to it.

A fun scene in the movie. And a pleasant song to listen to on CD. As pointed out, the song has a gospel feel to it, but the words say, other wise. The movie soundtrack featured good songs, and average songs.

Maybe, Sony has a longer version hidden away in their vaults with different lyrics. That would be cool as hell!

This is such a terrific and fun song and it's one of nine songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Winfield Scott.

A nice upbeat rousing track from GGG that is enjoyable but alas over much too soon. Fits perfectly into the film and with a change of lyrics and being longer in duration could easily have been a 5 star performance.

This has got to be Otis Blackwell's worst for Elvis.

Elvis singing Well Well Well is great, but it's no "I got a woman".

One of my favorites. Great stuff. Sounds like taken directly out of the cottonfields.

I can't believe Otis Blackwell stooped so low to come up with a song and lyrics, in particular, on this one. 1-star and that's being generous.
