Don't Fence Me in - Harry Connick Jr.

Well, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
But don't fence me in
Let me ride through that 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
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
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon till i lose my senses
I don't like hobbles and i can't stand fences
Don't fence me in
[Instrumental break]
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
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at that ole moon until i lose my senses
I can't stand them hobbles and i don't care for fences
Don't fence me in
Oh no...don't you fence me in
