Baby Im Yours
Oldies Music Lyrics

1971 Jody Miller Vinyl Record Memories

Jody Miller EMI

Baby Im Yours Oldies Music Lyrics is a 1965 original by Barbara Lewis and was covered by Jody Miller in 1971.

The Jody Miller remake of the song reached #5 on the Country Music Hot 100 list and remained on the charts for 14 weeks.

"Baby I'm Yours" was written by Van McCoy, record producer, arranger and songwriter best know for his 1975 internationally successful song, The Hustle.

By the mid-1960s, Miller became a pioneer crossover female vocalist, opening the doors for Linda Ronstadt, Anne Murray, and Olivia Newton-John, and others as a pop singer recording a strong country influence and finding success in both genres.

Although Jody got her start in the industry as a folk singer and then moved over to the pop field (charting such hits as "Home of the Brave," "He Walks Like a Man," and her very danceable version of "Silver Threads and Golden Needles") it was her 1965 smash hit that made her a crossover country star.

That year Jody Miller released an answer record to Roger Miller's (no relation) blockbuster hit "King of the Road", titled "Queen of the House," peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at number 5 on the country singles chart. Miller won the Grammy award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for the song in 1966.

Jody's Other Rockin' Remakes.

Jody covered many Classic Oldies but in addition to "Baby I'm Yours" my favorites are "He's So Fine," "Be My Baby" and "Will You Love Me Tomorrow."

Of course, you will love her grown-up approach to "Baby Im Yours." This isn't a girl group song when she sings it; it's a declaration of womanly intention! And I still love listening to "He's So Fine." If you were a teen back in the early 60s, and found your way here to Jody's cover of the song, you'll be humming that one all day long. I still have my original "Baby I'm Yours" and "He's So Fine" 45rpm copies I purchased new back in '71.

Jody Miller is such a versatile artist that she defies categorization. The lady can alternate flawlessly between two musical tones. There is such a thoughtful way that she chooses to phrase her interpretations. Her vocal pitch and tone elevate many of these good songs to something greater than they were before she gave them her treatment.

It's sad that Jody never attained the heights of Martina McBride, Connie Smith, Tammy Wynette, and other gal singers.

She was every bit as good and better when it came to my favorite classic oldies remakes. She had that ability to take Classic material and make it her own.

This song is just one example. Listen to this song and you can feel the emotion she puts into it. She could easily be thought of as the Martina McBride of the 60s and 70's and a remarkable thing about Jody is she still sounded Country when remaking all my cool rock'n'roll favorites.

And, as if it really mattered, she had the good looks to go with the great voice.

Many of Jody's cover songs, including this one, were recorded with The Jordanaires on background vocals. As Elvis and Ricky Nelson fans may remember The Jordanaires were responsible for background session vocals on many of their million sellers. It's pretty clear how well they blend with Jody's sexy lead vocals.

Sadly, Jody Miller died on Thursday, October 6, 2022 of Parkinson's complications in Blanchard, Oklahoma. She was 80.

Please enjoy these vinyl record memories from 1971 and this great cover by Jody Miller.

Baby I'm Yours
Recorded by Barbara Lewis - 1965
Written by Van McCoy
Covered by Jody Miller - 1971

Baby I'm yours
And I'll be yours until the stars fall from the sky
Yours until the rivers all run dry
In other words, until I die

Baby I'm yours
And I'll be yours until the sun no longer shines
Yours until the poets run out of rhyme
In other words, until the end of time

I'm gonna stay right here by your side
Do my best to keep you satisfied
Nothing in the world can drive me away
'Cause every day you'll hear me say

Baby I'm yours
And I'll be yours until two and two is three
Yours until the mountain crumbles to the sea
In other words, until eternity

I'm gonna stay right here by your side
Do my best to keep you satisfied
Nothing in the world can drive me away
'Cause every day you'll hear me say

Baby I'm yours
And I'll be yours until two and two is three
Yours until the mountain crumbles to the sea
In other words, until eternity

Baby I'm yours
Till the stars fall from the sky
Baby I'm yours
Till the rivers all run dry
Baby I'm yours
Till the poets run out of rhyme
Baby I'm yours
