Lyrics

Intro

Wildcat Kelley, looking mighty pale
Was standing by the Sheriff's side
and when the Sheriff said, "I'm sending you to jail
Wildcat raised his head and then he cried

(a) Oh give me land, lots of land, and 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 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

  (b) Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
  Underneath the western skies
  On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder
  Till I see the mountains rise

(c) I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in



 Instrumental



Wildcat Kelley, back again in town
Was sitting by his sweetheart's side
And when his sweetheart said, "Come on, let's settle down"
Wildcat raised his head and then he cried


(a) Oh give me land, lots of land, and 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 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

   (b) Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
   Underneath the western skies
   On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder
   Till I see the mountains rise


(c) I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
Gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in
