I ain’t nothin’ you’ve ever seen
Not the new King or the next James Dean
Try as you may
You’ll never put a Fence around me
Outside chance at an inside straight?
Babe I never hesitate
Try as you will
You’ll never put a Fence around me

Hey whatcha doin’?
You can’t save me from myself
Dangerously close to ruin
Is the way I move
And you’ll never put a Fence around me

Knew this girl she was half past crazy
They come take her away see
I know they never put a Fence around her
Darlin’ I look into your eyes
I can see your soul’s the same as mine
Don’t you ever let them put a Fence around you

Cuz Babe they’ll sock it to ya
Or maybe you’ll just coast on through
Amen and Hallelujah
Choose your own path and don’t let ‘em put a Fence around you

Cuz the floor dropped out and the roof caved in
It’s no wonder I’m in the shape I’m in
Life’s a very short walk down a very long road
I gotta strong back but it’s a heavy load
When everything they said that you’d go through is
Completely different and completely true
You learn it’s really just a matter of finding the truth for you

Hey where ya headed?
Why you got to leave so soon?
OK alright I get it
Well you take care
And don’t let ‘em put a Fence around you
They never put a Fence around me
Don’t let ‘em put a Fence around you
