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

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

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my ol' 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 can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

Wildcat kelley, back again in town
Was standin by his sweetheart's side
And when his sweetheart said "come on, let's settle down
Wildcat raised his head and cried

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

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my ol' 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
Can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in
