A classic single that embraces the traditional cowboy mythos while simultaneously reinventing it.
The title invokes memories of the cowboy archetype. A relationship is coming to an end, so the cowboy saddles up and rides out of town, into the sunset.
Big difference here? He’s not leaving by his choice. It’s the lady who holds the power here, and it’s the cowboy who’s on the receiving end of a broken heart. This isn’t Waylon and Willie’s cowboy.
