(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) OLD TOWN ROAD BY LIL NAS X AND BILLY RAY CYRUS “HERE IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG!”

IG@ogefashblog.

I have been trying so hard to understand video to the country rap song for a while now, even the lyrics as well. In all honesty, I had to push the song farther for review. It seems like the artistes were making a comparison between the Old Town Road of 1889 and the Old Town Road of 2019. What y’all think

WHAT IS THE SONG OLD TOWN ROAD ABOUT?

In the song “Old Town Road”, the artistes show preference to a particular route and how they want to travel that lane again.  Apparently, that route brings lots of successes, wealth and the good life they are experiencing. They are well prepared for the journey in a cowboy costume; they have got the boots, hats, costume of cowboy. View below from the line in verse 1…

“I got the horses in the back
Horse tack is attached
Hat is matte black
Got the boots that’s black to match”

 

The artistes also talk about living flamboyant lives. They have the money now and they womanize, purchase expensive and live the lifestyle associated with celebrities. View below from the line in verse 2

Cheated on my baby
You can go and ask her
My life is a movie
Bull riding and boobies
Cowboy hat from Gucci
Wrangler on my booty”

The artistes, Lil Nas X in particular also talk about sharing their talents with the world. He won’t let anything/anyone bring them. He has been through a lot of troubles in the past before he attained his success in the music industry compared to people who already had wealth before joining the industry. He won’t let people’s words discourage his music career.

“I been in the valley. You ain’t been up off that porch”

“Got no stress, I’ve been through all that”

 

In the1889 Old Town Road, Lil Nas X said “the last time I was here, wasn’t too welcoming outsiders” You feel you can relate this dialogue to the entire song? Kindly share with us via the comment box…

The song “Old Town Road” has an Intro drama that lasted for about 1 minute 35 seconds. The major instruments used to compose the song include piano, guitar and drums. I love the artiste’s distinctive vocals, for Billy in particular; so interesting to the ears. The song has three verses; the first two verses were taken by Lil Nas X while the third verse was taken by Billy Ray Cyrus. The chorus and bridge were taken twice. The vocabulary used expands people’s knowledge. They are the everyday kind of words. In essence, the song may be difficult for the layman to comprehend; it needs one with sufficient music knowledge to decipher the song. That’s why Ogefash blog team is here to do so.

The video stars Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Diplo, Vince Staples, Rico Nasty, Youngkio, Jozzy

LYRICS TO OLD TOWN ROAD BY LIL NAS X AND BILLY RAY CYRUS

INTRO/CHORUS

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)

VERSE 1

I got the horses in the back
Horse tack is attached
Hat is matte black
Got the boots that’s black to match
Riding on a horse, ha
You can whip your Porsche
I been in the valley
You ain’t been up off that porch, now

HOOK

Can’t nobody tell me nothing
You can’t tell me nothing
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
You can’t tell me nothing

VERSE 2

Riding on a tractor
Lean all in my bladder
Cheated on my baby
You can go and ask her
My life is a movie
Bull riding and boobies
Cowboy hat from Gucci
Wrangler on my booty

HOOK

Can’t nobody tell me nothing
You can’t tell me nothing
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
You can’t tell me nothing

VERSE 3: BILLY RAY CYRUS
Hat down, cross town, living 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
Riding 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

OUTRO/CHORUS: LIL NAS X AND 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
