In fact Don't Fence Me In was written a decade earlier for the never finished film Adios Argentina. Title and most of the lyrics were then credited to Bob Fletcher, an amateur poet from Montana and a real cowboy, who ended up sharing Cole Porter's royalties. Cole Porter made an undated demo recording with bariton Edward Nell in the 1930s.
