The guitar-driven song was originally written for the soundtrack of the movie Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid back in 1973, and became a big hit in 10 countries, but specifically in the United States where it made it high up three different charts, including to #12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The mellow track was eventually certified Silver in the United Kingdom and Platinum in Italy, and has gone on to be named one of the best songs ever released on several top music critics’ lists.

The track has also been covered by a number of high-profile music stars, including Guns N’ Roses.
