From memory...the songwriter was driving through Kansas and saw a telephone/electrical lineman along a long stretch of road and saw him as the epitome of loneliness, then the lyricist attached his own feelings of forlorn loneliness and made the whole world sadder, one cover version at a time. Was it even more in depth?

There's also a Kildare in Ireland, made famous for its rakes.
The Rakes of Kildare
