Cole Porter - Don't Fence Me In Lyrics
So this is where it was a combination of a great backstory and him being an absolute pleasure to work with. When you factored in the publishing rights for the song, and having Labrinth on board, it became a major initiative on our part. The road to acquiring those publishing rights was one far more scenic than the one Labrinth takes in the MINI spot, however. For years, Porter was credited with sole authorship as the tune became a hit via vocalists like Gene Autry, Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald, only later sharing the songwriting credit with Fletcher. Our CEO has it on his phone.

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.
Wildcat Kelley, lookin' mighty pale, Was standin' by the sherrif's side And when the sherrif said "I'm sendin you to jail, Wildcat raised his head and cried. 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, 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 gaze at the moon till I lose my senses I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences Don't fence me in.
Porter reworked Fletcher's poem, and when the song was first published, Porter was credited with sole authorship. Porter had wanted to give Fletcher co-authorship credit, but his publishers did not allow it. The original copyright publication notice dated October 10, and the copyright card dated and filed on October 12, in the U. Copyright Office solely lists words and music by Cole Porter. After the song became popular, however, Fletcher hired attorneys who negotiated his co-authorship credit in subsequent publications. Although it was one of the most popular songs of its time, Porter claimed it was his least favorite of his compositions. Porter's verses about Wildcat Kelly are not included in any of the hit recordings of the song but are used in the Roy Rogers film of the same title.
