Verse 1
Wildcat kelley, lookin' mighty pale,
Was standin' by the sherrif's side
And when the sherrif said "i'm sendin you to jail,
Wildcat raised his head and cried
Verse 2
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.
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze,
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me off forever but i ask you please,
Don't fence me in.
Verse 3
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.
Verse 4
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon till i lose my senses
I can't look at hobbles and i can't stand fences
Don't fence me in.
Verse 5
Wildcat kelley, back again in town,
Was standin by his sweethearts side,
And when his sweetheart said "come on let's settle down,
Wildcat raised his head and cried
Verse 6
Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies,
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 evenin' breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but i ask you please,
Don't fence me in
Verse 7
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.
Verse 8
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon till i lose my senses
I can't look at hobbles and i can't stand fences
Don't..... fence me in.
