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 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 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 until I lose my senses
Can't look at hubbles and I can't stand fences don't fence me in

Just turn me loose...
Don't fence me in don't fence me in
