"Trust in Me" is a song written by Ned Wever, Milton Ager, and Jean Schwartz.

It was first popularized by Mildred Bailey in 1937, charting at #4.

It was subsequently revived by Eddie Fisher. His recording was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-4444. It reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on February 1, 1951, its only week on the chart, at #29.[1] The flip side was Fisher's much bigger hit, "Tell Me Why".

Another version was recorded in 1951 by Louis Jordan on Decca Records (catalog number 27784[2])

Yet another revival was made by Etta James in 1961. The Etta James recording peaked on the charts at #30.
