Subject: Bob Dylan:You Belong to Me
From: SSWINNEY@worldnet.att.net
Date: 22 Mar 97 - 06:08 PM

I've come across a song performed by Bob Dylan titled "You Belong to Me" (not "She Belongs to Me"). It begins: See the pyramids along the Nile..." Can anyone tell me 1) did Bob Dylan write it? and 2) Which of his albums is it on? Thanks. Scott

The song of the same name (and Lyrics) is a very old big band number done by the Paul Weston orchestra. His wife, Jo Stafford, was the vocalist and she had a No. 1 hit. It was done in the fifties.

See the pyramids along the Nile,
see the sun rise on a tropic isle.
Just remember, darling, all the while,
You belong to me.

See the market place in old Algiers.
Send me postcards and souvenirs.
Just remember, darling, through the years,
You belong to me.

I'll be be so all alone without you.
Tell me you'll be lonely, too, and blue.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane.
See the jungle when it's wet with rain.
Just remember, darling, all the same,
You belong to me.

Lousy presentation, but there it is. I can't for the life of me remember Dylan ever doing this one!! Maybe it was his blue period. Enjoy

NOPE! Dylan didn't write it.

It was written by Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart and Chilton Price.

Pee Wee and Redd also co-authored 2 other giant hit songs

Tennessee Waltz and Bonaparte's Retreat.

YOU BELONG TO ME
Writers: Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart and Chilton Price

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle
Just remember, darling, all the while
You belong to me.

See the marketplace in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
But remember when a dream appears
You belong to me.

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too - and blue.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
Watch the jungle when it’s wet with rain
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me.

Wasn't this covered by Patti Page, or someone of the like? Nice song, always liked it & Ol Cape Cod, anyone care to discuss the gray area where this falls into the folk/blues category? Barry

I sang this song at the Singaround today. The song has always seemed a little short to me, and I wonder why three authors couldn't come up with some new words for the second B part. So I wrote some new ones without going to the colossal effort of thinking up three lines that rhyme.


You Belong to Me by Chilton Price, Redd Stewart, Pee Wee King

See the pyramids along the Nile,
watch the sunrise from a tropic isle.
Just remember darling all the while
you belong to me.

See the market place in old Algiers,
send me photographs and souvenirs,
just remember when temptation appears,
you belong to me.

I'll be so alone without you;
Maybe you'll be lonesome too.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane.
See the jungle when it's wet with rain.
Just remember till you're home again
you belong to me.

Night-time gets so long without you;
Daytime gets so lonesome too - and blue.
Cross the desert in a soaring plane;
See big cities in the misty rain.
Just remember till you're home again
you belong to me.

===========
I think I was middle-school age when I heard this song on the radio. To a kid on a boring suburban street with a half-dead elm in front of the house, going to a school run on principles from the 1930's, this song represented adventure and the exotic.

There was a sidewalk in front of our house, and for some reason one square of it had subsided 4 or 5 inches. Somedays the most exciting thing that happened all day was bouncing my bicycle into and out of that square.

Right, Joe. I never thought of that.

Button up your overcoat, when the wind blows free.
Take good care of yourself - YOU BELONG TO ME.
