Don’t Fence Me In

1934 – Cole Porter / Robert Fletcher

Oh, give me land, lots of land un-der star-ry skies above,
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride thru the wide open coun try that I love
Don’t fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the eve-ning 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
can’t look at hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in
