O give me land, lots of land, under 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

Let me 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 ol' 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

Repeat all
