"Lover Man" (also known as "Here He Comes", "Here Comes Your Lover Man" and variations) is a song written and performed by American psychedelic rock musician and singer Jimi Hendrix. The song was performed many times from as early as 1968, notably at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, and Berkeley Community Theatre and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. The tune from "Lover Man" was also used when the Jimi Hendrix Experience covered B. B. King's "Rock Me Baby", which they did a number of times in 1967, most notably at Monterey Pop Festival.

There are four released studio versions of this song. The first, entitled "Here He Comes (Lover Man)", recorded in April 1967, was an instrumental version and was featured on the box set The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The second, recorded in October 1968, is also entitled "Here He Comes (Lover Man)," appears on the compilation South Saturn Delta. The song was then recorded yet again in February 1969. However, additional and/or replacement parts were recorded for this version of the song in 1987 by both Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding. The song was then released on the 2010 album Valleys Of Neptune. The fourth version was recorded in July 1970, and features Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox. The version was released on the box set The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
