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

"Old Town Road" in the biggest song in America right now. (Well, technically, the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.) Undeniably, the Lil Nas X single is the biggest hit of 2019, having reigned atop the charts for two solid months… so far.

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!
