Don't Fence Me In (Hollywood Canteen USA 1944)

Don't Fence Me In (Hollywood Canteen USA 1944)

Frank Sinatra

Oh give me land, lots of land, and the starry skies above, don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love, don't fence me in.
Oh let me be by myself in the evening 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 and I'll straddle on my saddle underneath the western skies.
On my cayuse let me wander over yonder till I see the mountains rise.
Oh let me 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.
