"Baby You're Right" is a song by Joe Tex. He recorded it for Anna Records in 1961. Later the same year James Brown recorded the song, altering the melody and lyrics and adding a songwriting credit for himself. Released as a single on King Records, his version was a hit, charting #2 R&B and #49 Pop in 1962.[1] It also appeared on the album Think!. An alternate take of the song was included in the 1991 box set Star Time.[2]

Tex re-recorded "Baby You're Right" for Checker Records in 1965.
