Don't Fence Me In
Words and music by Cole Porter© & Robert Fletcher, 
©1942, from the film Hollywood Canteen*


[C]Wildcat [F]Kelly looking [C]mighty pale, 
Was standing by the sheriff's [G7]side
And [C]when the [F]sheriff said "I'm [C]sending you to
jail, "
[G7]Wildcat raised his head and [C]cried:
-------------
Chorus:
[C]Oh [G7]give me [C]land, lots of [Am]land
Under [C]starry skies a[Am]bove.
[C]Don't [F]Fence Me [G]In.
Let me [G]ride through the [G7]wide open
[G]Country that I [G7]love.
[G]Don't [G7]Fence Me [C]In.
Let me [C]be by myself in the evening [C7]breeze,
[F]Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood [Dm7]trees.
[C]Send me off for[C7]ever, 
but I ask [F]you, [C7]please[F],
[C]Don't [G7]Fence Me [C]In.

[C7]Just turn me [F]loose, let me straddle my old
saddle
Underneath the western [C]skies.
[C7]On my [F]cayuse let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains [C]rise.
[G]I [G7]want to [C]ride to the ridge 
where the west com[C7]mences,
[F]Gaze at the moon until I lose my [Dm7]senses.
[C]Can't look at [C7]hobbles 
and I can't [F]stand [C7]fen[F]ces.
[C]Don't [G7]Fence Me [C]In.

Wild cat Kelly back again in town, 
was sitting by his sweetheart's side, 
And when his sweetheart said, 
"Come on let's settle down."
Wild Cat raised his head and cried:

*Cole Porter was credited with sole authorship when
the song was published, but he had essentially
re-worked a poem written earlier by Robert Fletcher. 
Fletcher, 
who worked for the Dept. of Highways in Helena, MT, is
the one who wrote the "roadside history" placques that
were seen along the state's highways until the 
1980s.  Fletcher sold the poem/song to Porter for a
small sum when Porter was asked to write a cowboy song
for the film.   Porter wanted to give Fletcher 
co-authorship credit, but his publishers would not
allow that.  Later, after the song got so popular,
Fletcher hired legal advice and his attorneys
negotiated his 
being given proper co-authorship credit in subsequent
publications.

Give me land, lots of land under stary starry skies
above, 
but Don't fence me in.
Let me ride over through the wide open valleys spaces
that I love,         
But Don't fence me in, 

Let me ride to the ridge where the west commences,    
 
and  gaze at the moon 'till I loose my sences, 
I Can't look at hobbles, and I can't stand fences, so 
 
Don't Fence me in!
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze,
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me out forever, but I ask you, please,
Don't fence me in.

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
under neath a the western sky skies. 
On my kyuse cayuse, let me wonder wander over yonder
till I  reach see the mountain high mountains rise. 
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences, 
Gaze at the moon till I loose all sences lose my
senses, 
I Can't look  at hobbles, and I sure can't stand
fences, 
so Don't Fence Me In.

Repeat- give me land lots of land....
