    It is an idiom and means 'nothing will stop me from going'. Hope this is helpful.

    El expresión original es "Wild horses couldn´t drag me away"

    "to drag" " arrastrar"

    Supongo que cuando los gauchos tienen que rondear los caballos salvages, se usa una cuerda. Si el caballo es demasiadao fuerte, entonces le arrastra al gaucho a lo largo del suelo.
