Goodbye's are always difficult, but George Strait said it the only way he knew how: in song. 

On June 7, 2014, George Strait performed at his FINAL live performance and broke hearts world-wide, like this little girl who cried when she found out her favorite country singer is no longer touring. 

His final concert was star-studded and famous friends joined him on stage all night to help sing his biggest hits. But when it was time to close the show out, there was only one song that seemed appropriate, "The Cowboy Rides Away".

The song's lyrics, "And my heart is sinking like the setting sun/Setting on the things I wish I'd done/It's time to say goodbye to yesterday/This is where the cowboy rides away..." pull on our heartstrings, especially because it is the final time George will be performing. 

With friends supporting him onstage like Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, and Sheryl Crow, The King Of Country says an emotional goodbye to his fans who have given him a four-decade long career

George ended the song wiping away tears, before getting showered in confetti and taking his final bow. The sold-out stadium was so loud, paying their respects to the man who made such a huge impact on country music. 

It is hard not to get emotional watching this video. The iconic moment was televised on a CMT special called "George Strait: The Cowboy Rides Away" for those that missed the Arlington, Texas performance at AT&T Stadium. It was also announced recently that the special will be released on DVD

Watch his amazing final performance below. 

LYRICS BELOW

I knew the stakes were high right from the start.
When she dealt the cards, I bet my heart.
Now I just found a game that I can't play,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun,
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
It's time to say goodbye to yesterday.
This is where the cowboy rides away.

We've been in and out of love and in-between.
And now we play the final showdown scene.
As the credits roll a sad song starts to play,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

And my heart is sinking like a setting sun,
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away.
