"She's My Baby" is a song by the British–American supergroup the Traveling Wilburys and the opening track of their 1990 album Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3. The song was written by all four members of the band – George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty – and each of them sing a portion of the track. The song was released as the first single from the album, although it was only issued as a promotional single in the United States.[3] The lead guitar part is played by Gary Moore.

The band filmed a music video for the single, which was directed by David Leland and produced by Limelight Films.[4] The clip shows the four Wilburys and drummer Jim Keltner performing the track and a snippet of Dylan riding a bike on the set.[5] The single peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart peaking there for 3 weeks behind "Concrete and Steel" by ZZ Top for a week, followed by "Hard to Handle" by The Black Crowes for two additional weeks.[6][7]
