Don't Fence Me In

This song is by Frankie Laine and appears on the compilation album High Noon (2000).

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
Listening to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off for ever 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 'til I see the mountain rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses
Can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in.
