"Don't Fence Me In" as written by and Cole Porter....
Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride in the wide open country I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
And 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
Let me wander over yonder
'Til I see the mountains 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

Just turn me loose
Let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western sky
Let me wander over yonder
'Til I see the mountains 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, don't fence me in, don't fence me in
Don't fence me, don't fence me, don't fence me in
