“Don’t Fence Me In” – Cole Porter
[Chords by Joan’s Genius 2008}


This is my most favorite song. The chords below are based on my 2 favorite covers of this:
(1) a very slow & quiet blues rendition by Holly Cole &
(2) a very fast & lively cajun version by David Byrne.

* I've revised this to include the intros (about Wildcat Kelley) that are in the original version. Feel free 
to sing it with or without these sections. 


“Don’t Fence Me In” 

A               D                   
Wildcat Kelley, lookin mighty pale 
    A                         E7   
Was standing by the sheriff’s side
    A                           D  
And when the sheriff said, “I’m sending you to jail” 
E                           A
Wildcat raised his head and cried


E      E7          A
  Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
               E
Don't fence me in
       E
Let me ride through the wide-open country that I love
E        E7       A
   Don't fence me in
          A                           A7
Oh let me be by myself in the evening breeze
D                           Dm
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
A                          A7
Send me off forever, but I ask you, please
E        E7       A
   Don't fence me in

A7              D                                                             A
    Just let me loose // Let me straddle my old saddle underneath the western skies
A7            D                                                          A
     On my cayuse //  Let me wonder over yonder till I see the mountains rise
E    E7      A                           A7
   I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
D                           Dm                A             A7          D           Dm
   Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses // Can't look at hobbles & I can't stand fences
E       E7       A
  Don't fence me in

(Solo)

A               D                      
Wildcat Kelley, back again in town
    A                           E7   
Was standin by his sweetheart’s side
    A                               D   
And when his sweetheart said, “come on, let’s settle down” 
E                           A
Wildcat raised his head and cried 

(repeat from “Oh give me land”)
 
E       E7       A
  Don't fence me in!
