Patsy Cline You Belong To Me Lyrics

Last updated:

Written by Pee Wee King, Chilton Price and Redd Stewart


(As recorded by Jim Reeves, 6/25/57)

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin' all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just 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
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

(This portion, sung by background singers,
omitted in later release)
(I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too, and blue)

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

(Repeat last verse)

(Jim Reeves demo)

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunset on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin' all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just 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
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til I'm home again
You belong to me

(Repeat last two verses)

(As recorded by Patsy Cline, 2/12/62)

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin' all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just 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
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

I'm gonna be so alone without you
And I'm hopin' maybe you'll be lonesome, too, and blue

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

classy, no-nonesense goodness | Reviewer: colleen | 2/22/2005

Patsy Cline is a classic. Her rendition of this song is smooth and stunning, as well as heartbreaking. Not to mention that by taking on this song, as it is about 'ownership'of a partner, she challenges the hegemonic system of beliefs especially prevalent in her era. Her style is graceful and poignant, and her execution is impeccable in this and almost all of her recordings.
