Don't Fence Me In

 

6 7 -8 8 8 -8 8
Oh, give me land, lots of land

8 -8 8 -8 7 -8 8
un-der star-ry skies a-bove,

8 -9 8 -8
Don't fence me in.

-7 7 -8 -8 7 -8 -8 7
Let me ride through the wide o-pen

-8 7 -7 7 -8
coun-try that I love,

9 9 -9 8
Don't fence me in.

7 -8 8 8 -8 8
Let me be by my-self

8 -8 8 8 -8 7
in the eve-ning bre-eze,

-9 8 -9 8 -9 8
Lis-ten to the mur-mur

-9 9 -10 9 -10 9 -9
of the cot-ton-wood tre-es,

8 -8 8 -9 9 -9
Send me off for-ev-er,

9 -10 -10 -10 9 -9
but I ask you ple-ase,

8 8 -8 7
Don't fence me in.

7 7 7 7
Just turn me lose,

-6 -7 7 -7 -6 -7 7 -7
let me strad-dle my old sad-dle

-6 -7 7 -8 7 -6 6
un-der neath the West-ern skies,

7 7 7 7
On my cay-use,

-6 -7 7 -7 -6 -7 7 -7
let me wan-der o-ver yon-der

-6 -7 7 -8 7 -6 6
till I see the moun-tains rise,

6 7 -8 8 8 -8 8
I want to ride to the ridge

8 -8 8 8 -8 7
Where the West com-menc-es,

-9 -9 8 -9
Gaze at the moon

-9 9 -10 -10 9 -9
till I lose my sens-es,

8 8 -9 9 -9
Can't look at hob-bles,

9 -10 -10 -10 9 -9
and I can't stand fenc-es,

8 8 -8 7
Don't fence me in.
