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,
An' gaze at the moon till I lose my senses,
An' I can't look at harbours an' I can't stand fences:
Don't fence me in.

Instrumental break.

(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,
An' gaze at the moon till I lose my senses,
An' I can't look at harbours an' I can't stand fences:
So don't fence me in, oh no,
Now brother, don't you fence me in.

    Don't try to make conform to your image of what I should be. I can't settle in one place. I need to live where I can enjoy nature, have a job outdoors, move around when I get the urge.
