Lyrics Post: “Old Town Road”

My kids love this song. They all sing it in the car. My son wants to hear it while he takes a bath. Got to admit it’s pretty catchy.

And a 20 year old song writer who launched via the internet, and has Billy Ray Cyrus and Trent Reznor in his corner? Gotta be something to it.

“Old Town Road (Remix)”

(feat. Billy Ray Cyrus)

[Billy Ray Cyrus:]

“Oh, oh-oh

Oh

Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

(Kio, Kio)

[Lil Nas X:]

I got the horses in the back

Horse tack is attached

Hat is matte black

Got the boots that’s black to match

Ridin’ on a horse, ha

You can whip your Porsche

I been in the valley

You ain’t been up off that porch, now

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’

You can’t tell me nothin’

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’

You can’t tell me nothin’

Ridin’ on a tractor

Lean all in my bladder

Cheated on my baby

You can go and ask her

My life is a movie

Bull ridin’ and boobies

Cowboy hat from Gucci

Wrangler on my booty

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’

You can’t tell me nothin’

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’

You can’t tell me nothin’

Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

[Billy Ray Cyrus:]

Hat down, cross town, livin’ like a rock star

Spent a lot of money on my brand new guitar

Baby’s got a habit: diamond rings and Fendi sports bras

Ridin’ down Rodeo in my Maserati sports car

Got no stress, I’ve been through all that

I’m like a Marlboro Man so I kick on back

Wish I could roll on back to that old town road

I wanna ride ’til I can’t no more

[Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus:]

Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road

I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more”

Writer(s): Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Kiowa Roukema, Montero Hill

And this bonus insight from AZLyrics.com:: “”Billy Ray Cyrus wrote on Twitter on the 5th of April 2019, “Congrats @lilnasx I’m always in your corner! #1 #OTR #OldTownRoadREMIX.”

For Cyrus, the old town road reminds of the Old Town Bridge in Argillite, Kentucky, where he played in childhood.”
