don’t fence me in

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 hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in
Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide 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
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
On my Cayuse
Let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba
I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
And gaze at the moon ’til I lose my senses
I can’t look at hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in
No, Papa, don’t you fence me in

January 26, 2016

This was the blizzard of 2016, we were “snowed in” for 6 days. On the 5th day I decided to walk down to the mail box and get the mail. The farm lane had been plowed and if I had thought about it, I could have walked down their lane. I didn’t realize it was as deep as it was til about 1/2 way down. It took my 45 minutes to walk 1/2 a mile. On the way back, I walked up the farm lane and hopped the fence closer to the house. Well, more like climbed the fence and fell over on the other side…there was about 3 feet of snow.
