VERSE 1: (Slow Arpegiatted chords & matching vocals)
D                 G             D
Wild Cat Kelly, looking mighty pale,
                               A7
Was standing by the sheriff’s side.
      D                         G              D
And when that sheriff said I am sending you to jail,
         A                   D
Wild Cat raised his head and cried.


CHORUS 1: (Sung and played with gusto)
D
Oh give me land, lots of land under starry skies above,
               A7
Don’t fence me in.

Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
               D
Don’t fence me in.
                                   D7
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze,
G
Listen to the murmur of the cotton wood trees.
D                          B7      Gm
Send me off forever, but I ask you please,
D       A7     D
Don’t fence me in.


VERSE 2:
             G
Just turn me loose let me straddle my old saddle, (Ooooh)
                       D
Underneath the western skies. (Oooo-Ooooh)
      G
On my Cayuse let me wander over yonder, (Oooo-Ooooh)
                         D
Till I see the mountains rise. (Aaaah-aaah)
                                           D7
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences,
    G
And gaze at the moon till I loose my senses.
  D                          B7          Gm
I can’t look at hovels and I can’t stand fences,
D       A7     D
Don’t fence me in.

VERSE 3:
             G
Just turn me loose let me straddle my old saddle, 
                       D
Underneath the western skies. (Obah-eeeh)
      G
On my Cayuse let me wander over yonder, 
                         D
Till I see the mountains rise. (Oooh-eeeh)
                                           D7
I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences,
    G
And gaze at the moon till I loose my senses.
  D                          B7          Gm
I can’t look at hovels and I can’t stand fences,
D       A7     D
Don’t fence me in.


VERSE 4 & CODA:
G
I’m the rovin’ kind,
D
So if you don’t mind.
G                  
All that I can say is,
N/C
“C’mon Trigger…”
D           A7  D
Let’s be on our way.”

NOTES:
1.  “…Cayuse, is an archaic term used in the American West, usually referring to a feral or low-quality 
horse or pony. …”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayuse_horse
2.  “…In 1945, the song was sung again as the title tune of another Roy Rogers film, Don't Fence Me In 
(1945), in which Dale Evans plays a magazine reporter who comes to Roy Rogers' and Gabby Whittaker's 
(George "Gabby" Hayes) ranch to research her story about a legendary late gunslinger. When it's revealed 
that Whittaker is actually the supposedly dead outlaw, Rogers must clear his name. Rogers and The Sons of 
the Pioneers perform songs, including the Cole Porter title tune.  The next year (1946), a biopic about 
Cole Porter titled Night and Day used a clip from ‘Hollywood Canteen’ of Rogers singing "Don't Fence Me 
In.”…”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_Fence_Me_In_(song)#Roy_Rogers_and_.22Don.27t_Fence_Me_In.22
