Baby I'm Yours was Maureen McGovern's eighth studio album (and her first album in three years), released in 1992.

This is a cover album of 15 songs from the years 1955 to 1970. Inside the album cover are notes that McGovern made about her youth in Youngstown, Ohio and specific notes on all of the selected songs on the album and how they are meaningful to her. The seventh track is a medley of two songs by the Beatles. Other songs include three songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David (two of which were made popular by Dionne Warwick, one of her influences) and the Duprees' hit "You Belong to Me." The front of the album cover shows McGovern with her hair dyed red and her wearing a green diamond-covered outfit.
