Lil Nas X “Old Town Road” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified


When I found out Billboard took it off the
country charts … Before it was even taken off the country charts, I was just happy to
be on Billboard at all. Even after they did take it off, I was like,
“Okay, at least I’m still on Billboard.” Then, I started to think about, I was like,
“Why?” After listening to other songs that’s actually
on that chart, it’s like wait a minute, something’s not right, basically. I was living with my sister at the time. I wasn’t paying bills, obviously, so it’s
like of course she wants me to leave. I didn’t want to go back home because I just
left school and I was ready to do music now. It started off as a runaway, loner cowboy
kind of story. It was like, yeah I want to take my horse
to the old town road, ride till I can’t no more, meaning I’m just gone, I’m not coming
back. I wanted to be more of a triumphant kind of
story. It’s like the horse would be not having much
and old town road would be like that path to success and you taking the horse to old
town road. When the car came along, the horse was basically
obsolete at that point. It’s like it’s not really worth too much. I literally had my dad paying my phone bill
and a Twitter account. It’s like I’ve got to make something shake,
because I’m not going back to work. There’s so many artists coming up that have
so many resources, but that’s not phasing what’s going to really count, your music. Yeah, you got this, but I got this right here. You can keep doing what you’re doing, but
I’m going to show you that I’m going to make this happen. See, this is the perseverance type of line. Yeah, I’m talking to people who are saying
this is not gonna happen for me, but it’s also a cowboy who’s clean as fuck, and he’s
just like, “Can’t nobody tell me nothing.” You feel me? After I actually released the song, I had
to think about it. I was like, “Wait, Kanye did use this exact
line.” It wasn’t interpolation of the song or nothing,
but everybody knows the song, of course. This second verse is the future now. It’s what you see a lot in Hollywood, adultery,
all that. I have me a brand new tractor. I’m on some Lean, not trying to endorse that,
by the way. Around that time, I had just watched that
Dallas Buyers Club movie. That scene with Matthew McConaughey. I just had that scene in my mind, I was just
thinking about his lifestyle. That’s what I did for that line. That last line was just a big flex really,
it’s just like even Gucci don’t even have a cowboy hat yet, we got to make that happen.
