my lyricsbox
Wildcat Kelly, looking kind of pale,
Was standing at the Sheriff's side,
And when the Sheriff said "I am sending you to jail,"
Wildcat threw back his head and cried.

Just 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' breezes,
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood tree-zes,
Send me off forever, and I'll ask you please,
Don't fence me in.

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my ol' saddle underneath
a western sky,
On my 'cause let me wander over yonder 'til I see the mountains rise.
I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences,
Gaze at the moon 'til I lose my senses,

Can't handle hobbles, and I can't stand fences,
Don't fence me in.
Wildcat Kelly back in town again, was standing at his sweethearts side,
And when his sweetheart said, "see'mon let's stop and settle down",

Wildcat threw back his head and cried;
Just 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' breezes,
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood tree-zes,
Send me off forever, and I'll ask you please,

Don't fence me in.
Just turn me loose, let me straddle my ol' saddle underneath
a western sky,
On my cayuse let me wander over yonder 'til I see the mountains rise.
I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences,

Gaze at the moon 'til I lose my senses,
Can't handle hobbles, and I can't stand fences,
Don't fence me in.
Don't fence me in... I said a, don't fence me in.
This song is from the album "In The Mood With Sammy Kaye".
