Don't Fence Me In Cole Porter, Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters (#1 in 1944), Gene Autry,
Sammy Kaye (#4 in 1945), Kate Smith (#8 in 1945), Horace Heidt (#10 in 1945)

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,

And 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 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

And gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can't look at hovels and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in.
