Welcome to My World is a 1967 studio album by Dean Martin.[2] The album was released after the unexpected success of the singles "In the Chapel in the Moonlight" and "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me".

This was the second album that Martin released in 1967. Welcome to My World peaked at 20 on the Billboard 200.[3] It was reissued on CD by Hip-O Records in 2009.[4]

"In the Chapel in the Moonlight" topped the Adult Contemporary Chart, and peaked at 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me" peaked at 5 on the Adult Contemporary Chart and 38 on the Billboard Hot 100.[3]

William Ruhlmann on Allmusic.com gave the album three stars out of five. Referring to Reprise's propensity to reissue material he commented that it "may have been another of Reprise's mix-and-match Martin LPs, but it was a successful one, restoring a measure of his commercial clout".[2]
