Don't Fence Me In

Don't Fence Me In

Frankie Laine

Oh, give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through that wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evenin? breeze
An' 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 till I lose my senses
And I can't look at harbours and I can't stand fences
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 that wide open country that I love:)
(Don?t fence me in.)
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
An' 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
An' gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
An' I can't look at harbours and I can?t stand fences
So don?t fence me in, oh no
Now brother, don?t you fence me in
