Don't Fence Me In (Edwards Tommy)

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 evening 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 want to 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 Don't fence me in No, don't fence me in No, don't, don't fence me in
