Are these lyrics from ''Old Town Road'' or a classic TV western theme song?

"Old Town Road" was one of the biggest songs last year (Well, technically, the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.) Undeniably, the Lil Nas X single was the biggest hit of 2019, having reigned atop the charts for 3 months.

And it's no wonder. "Old Town Road" blends the two biggest genres in American music — hip-hop and country — into a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of pop. Plus, as classic TV Westerns proved, everybody loves a cool cowboy.

But how well do you know the lyrics? Could you, say, tell the difference between the No. 1 song of 2019 and lyrics from a half-century-old TV western? See if you can tell them apart!
