Thread Name: Origins: Don't Fence Me In (Cole Porter)
Subject: RE: Don't fence me in
The sources I found gave Robert Fletcher at least partial credit for the words. I think it's questionable whether Cole Porter actually wrote any of the lyrics, although it seems he did write the tune.

The second verse I mentioned above is actually a second intro, all the lyrics that follow it are a repeat of the above. The whole thing can be found here.
