The music was written by Richard Rodgers, the lyrics by Lorenz Hart. The song was published in 1925.

The song was introduced in the Broadway musical Dearest Enemy, and has become a standard recorded by many artists.

  • Ella Fitzgerald included this song on her 1957 Verve 2-record set: Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers and Hart Songbook with a lush orchestra conducted by Buddy Bregman.
  • Lee Wiley - Hot House Rose (1996), Legendary Song Stylist (1999)
  • "Here in My Arms" was one of four songs (along with "Glad to Be Unhappy", "My Heart Stood Still" and "Sing For Your Supper") the Mamas & the Papas performed on Rodgers and Hart Today, a salute to Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, aired March 2, 1967 on ABC TV. Footage of "Here in My Arms", "My Heart Stood Still" and "Sing For Your Supper" can be seen on the DVD California Dreamin': The Songs of the Mamas & the Papas released in 2005. The Mamas & the Papas reworked the song as "No Salt On Her Tail" for their 1966 self-titled album, when they needed one more song to complete that album. The band never recorded a formal studio version of "Here In MY Arms", however.
