Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open spaces that I love
Don't fence me in

I wanna be by myself in the evenin' 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 wanna ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses
I can't look at harbors and I can't stand fences
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 wanna ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses
I can't look at harbors and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in, don't fence me in
No, no don't fence me in
