Here Comes My Baby is an album by country music singer Dottie West in 1965.

This album was Dottie West's first studio album for RCA Victor. She originally signed with the label a year before, while recording a Top 10 Country hit with Jim Reeves and a Top 40 single of her own. She then co-wrote and released a new single in 1964 entitled, "Here Comes My Baby", which became a Top 10 Country hit in 1964. The song won West a Grammy award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1965, and she became the first female Country singer to ever win a Grammy. This album is based on the hit single's success. The album includes cover versions of Country hits like Ray Price's "Night Life". Another single from the album entitled "Didn't I" was released in early 1965, and was a Top 40 single, reaching No. 32.
