"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."
~ Cole Porter, Don't Fence Me In
The great plains of the Midwest where the wide open spaces of farmland meet the vast space of the sky in the endless horizon. You can literally see for miles and miles and miles. No claustrophobia here.
