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
And 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
And gaze at the moon until I lose my senses,
I can't look at hovels and I can't stand fences,
Don't fence me in!
