Harry Connick, Jr. Don't Fence Me In Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2010 10:00:00 AM

Wild Cat Kelly looking mighty pale
Standing by the sheriff's side.
When that sheriff said, "I'm sending you to jail"
Wild Cat raised his head and cried.

Oh, give me land, lots of land
Under starry skies above
But 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 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 sky.
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.

Just turn me loose
Let me straddle my old saddle underneath the western sky.
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 stand hobbles and I can't stand fences,
Don't fence me in.
Don't fence me in.

Wild Cat Kelly back again in town,
Sitting by his sweetheart's side.
When his sweetheart said, "C'mon, let's settle down"
Wild Cat raised his head and cried.

Don't fence me in.
Don't fence me in.
Don't fence me in.
Don't fence me in.
