Don't Fence Me In

Cole Porter, Roy Rodgers, Sons of the Pioneers,

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
       D                   D7
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cotton wood trees
D                         B7
Send me off forever but I ask you please
E7      A7       D
Don't   fence me in

             G           (G7)
Just turn me loose let me straddle my old saddle
                       D        (D7)
Underneath the western skies
On my kyoose let me wander over yonder
                        D        A7
Till I see the mountain rise
          D                           D7
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
G                       (G7)   
Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses
  D                           B7
I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
E7      A7       D     (B7
Don't   fence me in    (motherlover
E7      A7       D
Don't   fence me in)
