don’t fence me in lyrics – john barrowman

oh, give me land, lots of land
under starry skies above
don’t fence me in

let me ride through the wild 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 sky
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
