Don't Fence Me In

Oh give me land, lots of land
under starry skies above
Don't fence me in

Let me ride through the wide
open country that I love
Don't fence me in

Let me be by myself
in the evenin' breeze
listen to the murmur
of the cottonwood trees
send me off forever
but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose
let me straddle my old saddle
underneath the western skies
On my cayuse, let me wander
over yonder till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge
where the West commences
gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
I can't look at hobbles
and I can't stand fences

Song by Robert Fletcher and Cole Porter
